Get Tipsy With These 8 Delicious Boozy Cupcakes


By Cooking Panda

Not only is it Thirsty Thursday, but it’s National Vanilla Cupcake Day as well. We’re here for you, and we want to make sure that you celebrate these two wonderful occasions in the absolute best way possible. So, we thought, what better way than to combine the rich sweetness of booze with fluffy, creamy sweet cupcakes? You can thank us later. Right now, all that matters is that you make these perfect desserts:

1. Jack Daniels Honey Cupcakes

With whiskey’s natural vanilla flavors and the honey infusion, you’ll fall in love with how perfectly the booze complements the nice vanilla buttercream.

2. Citrus IPA Cupcakes

Use nice, bold citrussy IPA for this one — ideally something with grapefruit notes. Or don’t. We won’t know.

3. Buttered Rum Cupcakes

If you’re on the fence about spiced rum and butter for some unknown reason, here’s the kicker that will push you overboard: you get to make these with store-bought biscuit dough, so you can skip several steps if you want to cut down on kitchen time.

4. Cinnamon Eggnog Bourbon Cupcakes

Whether you like drinking thick, sweet eggnog or not, you might be impressed with how nicely it lends itself to baking rich, moist cupcakes. What a perfect way to transition into the holiday season.

5. Honey Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes with Boozy Honey Buttercream Frosting

Invest in some hazelnut liqueur and you’ll find your kitchen and bar game improving tremendously. Drizzle these cupcakes with a little honey for a visually stunning, thoroughly delicious treat.

6. Chocolate Red Wine Cupcakes

What goes better than chocolate and red wine, honestly? If you’re looking for something deep, rich and indulgent, look no further.

7. Margarita cupcakes

If you’re looking for light, refreshing cupcakes, these zippy, tipsy lime ones are exactly what you need.

8. Chocolate Stout and Irish Cream Liqueur Cupcakes

There’s no need to wait for St. Paddy’s Day to make yummy cupcakes with Irish booze. These are a year-round thing, no question.
