The Dark and Stormy Cupcake is a sweet twist on the cocktail by the same name and this made-from-scratch treat is sure to be as big a hit as its namesake at your next party. The cream cheese frosting is rich and decadent with enough rum added for a robust flavor, but not so much that you need a designated driver. Embellished with crystallized ginger, the mild but distinctive flavor perfectly complements the moist cupcake and creamy frosting.

Add a fun twist to any summer celebration with this adults-only treat! These Margarita cupcakes combine the best of both worlds, thanks to their sweet buttercream and tequila frosting, complete with a splash of lime juice for extra authenticity. The cupcake itself has tequila in the batter, so save these treats for child-free BBQ’s and parties.
Inspired from a very minty and refreshing drink, these cupcakes are wonderfully light and moist. With an undertone of alcohol in the cupcake and frosting, every cup is not as overpowering as one would assume. Just from looking at it, it’s as refreshing as spring and as exciting as summer.
