Need a dessert idea for your upcoming Stampede party or potluck invite?

We can think of four booze-fuelled treats. There’s luscious, tequilla-filled margarita pie. Kaluha Mud Pie, whiskey-soaked fudge, and this baby, merlot and cranberry brownies. It uses the Stampede’s firewater, being sold at liquor stores as we speak. Can’t wait to try it.
