My third installment on booze-infused cupcakes, I decided to go with a favorite drink of mine - Rum & Coke!

I made a basic chocolate butter cake, with Coca-Cola, and a shot of Myers' Extra Dark Rum. Even after baking, the cupcakes still had a prominent spicy-rum taste, and the flavor of the Coca-Cola really showed through. Super, super moist and delicious.

But the buttercream was truly the star of this cupcake. I made an Italian Meringue Buttercream, and added vanilla extract and Myers' Extra Dark rum. Velvety, smooth, and almost mousse-like.

These were a HUGE hit with my friends! And yes, they were very boozy! :)
