Adding wine or basing a cupcake recipe off of an alcoholic beverage is very ideal. Going with the theme of the Dark and Stormy Cupcakes, the Chocolate Merlot Cupcakes quickly caught my interest because it was another cupcake recipe involving alcohol.
Maybe you are not familiar with the combination of wine and cupcakes, but it really infuses the cupcake with flavor and plays well with the idea of drinking a glass of wine. Instead, the wine is in the cupcake! What could be more sweet than that?
Since it will be the weekend soon and if you are of age, buy a bottle of wine and experiment. The worst that could happen is you have more wine to drink that you anticipated.
