Old Fashioned Cocktail Cupcakes

Old Fashioned Cocktail Cupcakes

Anyone for a cocktail?A cocktail cupcake, that is. Begin this yummy journey with a vanilla base, then have a little fun adding flavors like orange zest and your favorite whiskey (be honest, you DO have a favorite), for an Old Fashioned disguised as a bite of cake. For this recipe, be careful not to use all of your whiskey in the base (or for tasting purposes…that’s important too!), as you need to reserve some for brushing on the baked cakes. This finishing touch adds back in a little of that “old fashioned” flavor you’ll inevitably bake out. Be sure to eat and drive responsibly with these, and don’t forget the bitters!

Pina Colada Cupcakes

Pina Colada Cupcakes

You could say that when you are boozing it up with these cupcakes, you’re doing it in a very classy way. Or you could just say, “TGIF!” Pina Colada Cupcakes are every bit as good as knocking back a few real-life Pina Coladas. The thing about this particular cupcake though, is that it has a double whammy when it comes to the alcohol. These babies are rum soaked AND filled with pineapple preserves, which no doubt acts as a wonderful vessel for gathering up a bit more of that rum flavor. It just might be that these are a don’t eat-and-drive delectable! (But wouldn’t they be worth it?)

It is certainly not rare when a cupcake comes along with a frosting recommendation, but for these chocolate red wine cupcakes, marionberry frosting is not a SUGGESTION, but a NECESSITY! The frosting makes these scrumptious treats, and you’ll regret eating them without it. Well, you won’t regret it, but you’ll be sad when you finally do taste one with the frosting, because you’ll realize on the taste you were missing out on. Oh, and the wine doesn’t hurt, either.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Cupcakes with Butter Pecan Frosting

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Cupcakes

Chocolate, bourbon, pecan pie, cupcakes, butter pecan frosting. Do we really need to say anything else to convince you to pull out a mixing bowl? These adult goodies may be more on the complicated side of the kitchen, but the finished product, essentially tiny bourbon pecan pies with chocolate crust, is worth twice the effort, easy. Be sure to allow enough time for the chocolate cake bases to cool, and in the meantime, get to whisking the yummy pecan pie filling that makes this recipe perfect for Thanksgiving festivities.
