    cookiedog's Note:

    Can't make it to Kentucky for the Derby? Put on your prettiest hat and make these cupcakes inspired by Mint Juleps. They have a fair amount of Bourbon, but not nearly enough to taste exactly like a mint julep- just enough to make them for the adults only. And no matter who wins the race, I BET you'll enjoy them!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cupcakes

    Units: US | Metric

    For the frosting

    garnish

    • mint sprig (optional)
    • green sprinkles (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350F, and line cupcake cups.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, & salt. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In the mixer bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Once the eggs are combined, add the extracts. Slowly add in half of the flour mixture. Add the milk and liquors to the batter, then the rest of the flour. Mix as little as possible, just until the batter comes together.
    4. 4
      Divide evenly among the cupcake cups. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Let cool.
    5. 5
      For the frosting: Whip the butter & shortening using the whisk attachment (if available). Slowly add in half the powdered sugar. Add in the extracts & bourbon. Add the rest of the powdered sugar. Then slowly add in milk until frosting reaches desired consistancy.
    6. 6
      Once cupcakes are completely cooled, frost and top with mint leaves and green sprinkles (optional, for decoration!).

      I made these last year and they were great.
      I'm going to try it as a cake this year.

      For those who'd like a non-alcoholic cupcake, one can always substitute pure vanilla extract (which has negligible amounts of alcohol) for bourbon. The substitution is: for every 2 tbsp of Bourbon, substitute 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract. You can use an alcohol free vanilla extract to avoid alcohol content altogether.
