Gingerbread is a holiday classic, although the addition of Guinness stout to the batter turns these into a tasty, yet adults-only holiday goodie. The cupcake batter is flavored with ginger (both candied and ground), molasses, cloves, cinnamon, and the aforementioned Guinness stout. The frosting is a standard buttercream, except for the addition of lime juice, which complements the flavors in the stout well. Add on a few pieces of candied ginger or other trimmings to make these look nice, as well as taste great!
