Baking for lushes

Yesterday at my office someone brought in margarita cupcakes for my friend Amorena’s birthday. With much skepticism I tried a lick of the bright green frosting. Was it bad? No. Was it good? Not really. It just tasted like a lime frosting with a hint of tequila which didnt really seem to go well with the whole cupcake thing. However, it got me thinking about what other deliciously alcoholic baked goods you could make. So I hit the internet and searched for recipes utilizing some of my favorite drinks as inspiration. The result? Well….Im lets just say Im planning a ladies baking night already ;)

White Russian Cake

Ok so Im actually more fond of Black Russians….but the cream in a White Russian just fits better for baking.

Chocolate Pecan Whiskey Pie

Whiskey and chocolate….what more could a gal want in life?

Rainbow Daiquiri Sorbet

Ok Ok I know…this isn’t technically a baked desert…but growing up my favorite ice cream flavor was always Baskin-Robbins Daiquiri Ice. What 6 year old likes daiquiri flavored sweets?!? Well, I guess that was a sign of my future lushness.

Harvey Wallbanger Cake

For those unfamiliar, a Harvey Wallbanger is basically a Screw Driver with a twist and bit of herbal vanilla hints.

Whiskey Cookies

Mmmm….now if only I could somehow combine these with the bacon cookies I would be all set.

Irish Stout Cake with Whiskey-Sour Icing

Mmmm Whiskey Sour (are you noticing a Whiskey trend here?) a simple classic drink. Why not combine it with cake and been and call it a night? I think I will ^_^

So there are just a few deliciousy boozey baked goods. I’ll try these out with the ladies and report back on our adventure. One thing I want to try and develop myself is a Whiskey and Gingerbread Cookie. I looked all over and couldnt find a recipe for this! Too me, this one makes perfect sense! I mean who doesn’t love a nice glass of Jameson on the rocks with just a splash of ginger? Why not take that and make a cookie?! Im thinking normal gingerbread cookies with a Jameson icing. Mmmm.
