Spiked Cupcakes for a 21st Birthday Bash

Many people anticipate the arrival of their 21st birthday for the obvious reason: you can drink legally! This milestone makes you probably feel more adult than when you turned 18. 

With the ID stating your 21 years, bar hopping is officially in order. But why not look beyond the booze for your 21st birthday celebration and incorporate something we all can’t say no to: cupcakes!

While most people enjoy a good drink in a tumbler, we recommend going in going with a cupcake form instead. Balancing something sweet with the drink of your choice can make for so many combinations of boozy cupcakes you’ll want to bake them all! Here’s a few of our favorites from around the web that you’ve got to try.

Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes

But when added into these delicious banana bourbon cupcakes that balance all these intense flavors perfectly.
