18 Creative Ways to Consume Alcohol Without Drinking It
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s the fact that alcohol and food are soul mates. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a glass of booze with their meals once in a while? If there's one thing that's (almost) always true, it's that the only thing that can make one good thing better is mixing it with another great thing. You know, like that random crossover of Boy Meets World and Sabrina the Teenage Witch back in '97.
So, it seems only natural that food and alcohol all wrapped up into one delicious boozy treat is basically the best thing ever. Those mixed drinks that you love to sip on the regular can make for the perfect ingredient in some of your favorite main dishes and desserts, so you might want to save a bit of that liquor in the kitchen.
If you’re wondering whether these alcohol-infused foods will get you drunk (or was that just me?), the answer to that is a resounding… maybe. Keep in mind that it all depends on the quantity of booze you use, the amount of alcohol that's burned off in the bake, and how much of this stuff you decide to eat. So for instance, your chances of getting drunk from a cooked meal are pretty slim (because most of the alcohol is cooked off anyway). But if you scarf down a few bowls of boozy fruit salad at your summer BBQ, then chances are you’ll be feelin' pretty tipsy by the end of the evening.

When you have your next movie night, ditch the movie theater butter and try this on for size. The popcorn is sweetened with agave nectar and light corn syrup, and it's given a bit of a boost with a splash of tequila.
