Whipped cream is a staple garnish on kids’ drinks like milk shakes and hot chocolate. But unless your typical morning coffee order ends with the suffix –ino, you probably don’t get much of the stuff as an adult.

If you’re looking for an excuse to up your whipped cream intake (or want to practice making whipped cream in a cocktail tin), here are seven drinks for grown-ups that could use some whipped cream.

1. Manhattan Ice Cream Float 
This float uses vanilla ice cream blended with bourbon and high-quality black cherry soda.

2. Hot Chocolate with Rum 
It’s exactly what it sounds like—creamy hot chocolate mixed with rich dark rum.

3. Huber’s Iced Spanish Coffee 
This coffee cocktail is spiked with Kahlua and rum.

4. S’moretini 
No bonfire needed for this boozy, liquid version of the beloved kids’ treat.

5. Dominicana 
This White Russian variation uses rum instead of vodka. Plus, the cream is whipped instead of stirred into the cocktail.

6. Grappatini 
A dollop of whipped cream softens grappa’s bite in this citrusy cocktail.

7. Rapu Nui 
This blended, alcoholic shake is the perfect dessert cocktail.
