For St. Patty's day, I have decided to do some alcohol infused cupcakes. My inspiration for this particular recipe was the popular Jager Bomb. A Jager Bomb, if you don't know, is a drink made of Redbull and Jager .
On to the yummy stuff!
Okay, what you will need for this recipe is as follows: a can of Redbull (I used a 12 oz. can, you can use more or less..it doesn't really change the taste...just the amount of caffeine.), 1/2 cup of Jager, 1/3 cup of suger (do NOT use more than this...it will be wayyyyy to sweet), 1.5 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of butter, 1.5 cups of confectioners sugar, a tbs. of corn starch, 1 cup of half and half (half whole milk half cream) and .5 oz of: red, brown and green food coloring.
The first step is to pre-heat your oven to 375 and put a bowl of water in the oven as well. This will help the insides cook nicely and the edges won't brown! Then, mix the redbull and the half and half.
Next, add the sugar! Remember, do NOT over do it! You will regret it! lol.
Add the flour next!
Add .5 of red coloring and .5 of brown!
Then mix! After everything is mixed, put the cupcakes into the tins! Make sure you only fill each tin half way up! Bake for 25 minutes on 375. While your cupcakes are in the oven, you can start working on the Jager creme filling. Put 1/3 cup of half and half of milk on the stove on low. While it warms up, mix a tbs. of corn starch with a little bit of corn starch. Just enough for it to become into a paste. Stir the paste into the milk , along with 1/3 cup of Jager and then add .5 oz of green food coloring. Now is the time to taste the creme to see if you would like to put more Jager in it or not!
I have noticed that some little lumps of corn starch remain even after it has cooked...this can be solved by sifting the mixture into another bowl so that it can cool off to the side. While the creme is cooling, make sure that your cupcakes are in good shape, and if they are take them out to cool. Do NOT put the creme in or frost until it is COMPLETELY cool. On to the frosting!
Mix 1/2 cup of butter and 1.5 cups of powdered sugar together to a fluffy texture.
Then add a FEW drops of Jager to the Icing and 2 drops of brown GEL coloring. Don't put too much Jager in the icing. It will get gross!
Take a ziplock bag and turn it inside out...scrape all the icing into the bag and turn it back the right way.
Cut a tiny hole in the corner of your bag and pipe as desired!
If you choose to make Jager Bomb shooters, take the cupcake you made and mush it up inside the shot glass evenly and pipe the icing evenly on top of the cake! Party City sells some shooters for super cheap!
