Friday Flavors: After a long week, try a drink-inspired cupcake

flavor friday

For most of us, the work week is a long one. This weekend, try relaxing with a drink-inspired cupcake. These are often just as fun to make as they are to eat and usually quite simple to fix up in a hurry.

First up is a Mudslide Cupcake from The Curvy Carrot. These cupcakes are infused with Kahlua in both the cake and the icing. Not much Kahlua is required and you can easily alter the recipe as you like. If you enjoy a chocolatey taste with a little kick, these are perfect for you.

The cold months can make summer seem so far away. To take your mind off of the chilly temperatures, try a Rum Cupcake with Pineapple FrostingBoulder Locavore came up with a delicious rum cupcake that can feature your favorite kind of rum in the cake. The pineapple frosting adds a beachy feel to the cupcakes and can take you from cold to warm with one bite.

Going off of the rum cupcakes, I Am Baker  features a Margarita Cupcake to add some sunshine to your day. This site uses a box cake mix for the cake and a small amount of tequila. As previously mentioned, all of these recipes can be altered to add as much or as little alcohol as you like.

Strawberry cupcakes are already highly popular, but adding champagne makes them perfect for a swanky weekend get-together or even a relaxing night in. The Cupcake Recipes shows a Strawberry Champagne recipe that’s super simple. You will taste a hint of champagne in the frosting as it is infused with 1/4 cup of champagne. Sounds delicious!

With Saint Patrick’s Day around the corner, Irish Car Bomb cupcakes sound perfect. Brown Eyed Baker posted a decadent recipe that features Irish whiskey and Bailey’s Irish Cream. It’s a simple yet delicious recipe that will get you in the mood for the upcoming holiday.

Try these this weekend to relax and unwind!
