Now that summer is in full swing, Independence Day is just around the corner, and nothing says “celebrate” like cupcakes. If you’re like us, sometimes a full cupcake in summer heat can be a little much, which is what makes these mini versions absolutely perfect.

Not only are these little goodies the perfect size for snacking, they’re also red, white and blue in American tradition and topped with an extra oomph of vanilla. They’ll be the stars of the show!

Negroni Cupcakes

Negroni Cupcakes

These Negroni Cupcakes are a wonderfully delicious way to turn this classic drink into dessert. The cupcakes feature all three of the basic ingredients from the cocktail.

The cupcake batter includes both Campari and sweet vermouth, which bring their unique flavors to the buttery cupcake batter. The cupcakes are topped with a gin-spiked buttercream. If you’re a gin fan, you’ll love the frosting. If you’re not a gin fan, you’ll probably love the frosting anyway.
