Cocktail Cupcake Happy Hour
Sara Ross of Kickass Cupcakes.
We caught up with Sara Ross, owner of Kickass Cupcakes, this week when we stopped in for their monthly Cocktail Cupcake Happy Hour. On the last Monday of every month they host this free event featuring mini cupcake samples based on cocktails. After sampling, you're encouraged to take a ballot and vote for your favorite limited edition cocktail cupcake flavor and the winner is announced the next day. Sara was quick to admit that coming up with the flavors every month is one of the best parts of her job. Onto the tasting!
The Happy Hour for January was dubbed: Dogfish Head Craft Ale Edition and featured the flavors of one of our absolute favorite craft breweries.
This month's Happy Hour featured three distinct creations:
Lemon cupcake, Fort gelee center, Fort raspberry icing and raspberry jam.
The World Wide Stout
Chocolate cupcake, World Wide Stout frosting and a hearty shot of World Wide Stout poured right down the center.
Vanilla cupcake soaked with Immort syrup, maple icing and topped with juniper candy.
The winner was the Immort! I have to admit that although each flavor was unique and we really enjoyed sucking back that shot of World Wide Stout we did end up voting for the Immort, as well.
