Raspberry Rosé & Negroni Cupcake Bites

Today I’m celebrating the start of summer and national rosé day with some boozy cupcake bites! I also discovered this is Negroni Week, which is a great way to support your favorite local restaurant and bars and at the same time contribute to some very worthwhile charities so I included some Negroni mini cupcakes as well.

  1. Raspberry Rosé Cupcakes – 24 cupcakes (Inspired by: Go Bold With Butter)

Tip: 

  1. To simplify recipe you can use white cake mix like I did for my Raspberry Rosé Cupcakes (above) and substitute 1/4 of cup of water called for with 1 ounce of Campari and 1 ounce of sweet vermouth.
  2. You can also simplify the gin frosting recipe by using pre-made frosting and adding 1 ounce of gin to the frosting.
