Bourbon Peach Sweet Tea Cupcakes

Happy summer!  I am so glad summer is finally here.  My favorite thing about summer is the abundance of fruit.  I get so burnt out on apples in the fall and winter, so when the bright, colorful fruits start popping up I get so excited.  One of my favorite summer flavors is peach.

I created this cupcake a few years back for a good friend’s birthday. Her favorite beverage is a bourbon peach sweet tea (I’m from the south!) and I decided to recreate that drink as a cupcake. 

I’ve only made this a few times since, but every time I make it I am reminded how delicious it is! They’re great for picnics, wedding showers, brunches, and pretty much just summer time in general. I tweaked this recipe a bit since the last time I made it and it has even more of a kick than I remember.

I’ll be bringing these cupcakes to my 4th of July celebrations.  They’re not red, white, and blue, but they are a delicious, summery peach with a nice kick of bourbon, and a touch of sweet tea vodka.   If you need a refreshing (adults only) summer recipe, you can’t go wrong with these!
