Now here is a fun recipe for some "grown-up" cupcakes. Cinnamon Whiskey Cupcakes! Since everyone loves cupcakes, and since I also like Whiskey, it was a no brainer for me to make this recipe.
I used red food coloring since I thought it would “match” the flavor of cinnamon Whiskey, but you can use any color you desire or none at all!
For this go-round, I used plain white vanilla frosting (and some red sprinkles) but you can easily experiment with food coloring and do whatever you want! Imagine the possibilities for Halloween.
