Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

Pretzel Stout Cupcakes

With warmer weather comes a surplus of patio and balcony parties. We’re donning tank tops, drinking cool beers and forgetting we ever needed those heavy jackets. And pretzels are the perfect companion to that beer. Even in cupcake form.

This genius recipe combines chocolate cupcakes with a stout brew and tops it all off with cream cheese frosting, pretzels and chocolate drizzle. If that’s not enough to round out a party, we aren’t sure what is!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As a designated drinking holiday in the United States (inexplicably), it’s only right that we share a margarita cupcake recipe in celebration.

These cupcakes are margaritas in perfect cupcake form, featuring tequila spiked cupcakes topped with tequila lime frosting and a touch of fleur-de-sel. Everyone knows it’s better not to indulge on an empty stomach, so be sure to eat a few before party-time!

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

Mint Julep Cupcakes with Buttercream Roses

It’s gonna be May (insert JT meme here), which means more than a few things, including flowers, Mother’s Day, the end of school and the Kentucky Derby, and….mint juleps.

While the drink itself is pretty delicious, we’re always a fan of a cocktail turned cupcake, and this one doesn’t let down. Spiked with Creme de Menthe and bourbon and topped with piped pink buttercream roses, we can’t think of a better way to welcome Justin Timberlake’s favorite month.

Mancakes: Beer, Bacon & Cheese Cupcakes

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, get ready to have quite a collection of hearts on your hands with these “mancakes.”

These sweets swap out the “sugar, spice and everything nice” in favor of a more modern set of puppy dog tails: beer, bacon and cheese. If you’re at all in tune with the world of food festivals, you know this combination, especially as a cupcake, is a no-brainer.

Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

This recipe is for vanilla cupcakes, just spiked with some sweet tea vodka and iced tea drink powder that gives the cake a great hint of sweet tea without being overwhelming.

The frosting is a remix of this whipped vanilla frosting made with lemonade powder and some fresh lemon juice too.  It’s a fluffy buttercream with the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness, especially if you’re someone who loves lemon.

These cupcakes are a riff on mint chocolate chip ice cream, which is typically colored green, with a generous amount of Bailey’s for character. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, even if you don’t choose to go green!

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

Irish Coffee Cupcakes

This is a great treat to bring to work on St. Paddy’s day: it won’t get you buzzed, but you get a little taste of liquor. For those of you who don’t know, Irish coffee is coffee spiked with sugar, whiskey and sometimes Irish cream, then topped with thick cream.

This whipped cream is lightly sweetened and spiked with whiskey or Irish cream. Topping the cupcakes with some chocolate syrup adds a nice sweetness to this barely sweet cupcake. Slàinte!
