1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups self rising flour
.25 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
(aka your basic cupcake recipe)
zest of one lime
juice of one lime
1 shot of rum
1 tbsp mint (or chop up a handful of fresh mint)

3 tbsp rum,
2 tbsp lime,
2 tbsp brown sugar and
1 tsp mint

3 tbsp softened butter
1.5 cup powdered sugar
a shot of rum
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lime zest
some chopped up mint
brown sugar to taste/texture


mix it up, then put it in cupcake wrappers in a tin. bake for 20 minutes at 350


while that's going on mix 3 tbsp rum, 2 tbsp lime, 2 tbsp brown sugar and a tsp mint together in a saucepan and simmer it for 5 minutes.

when the cupcakes come out, poke a few holes in the top and then pour a tsp or so of the syrup into the holes. (if you're feeling really wacky, also pour a bit of rum in the holes).


mix it up.

My friends and I had an "iron alcohol party" where everything you brought had to have alchol as an ingredient. After two attempts, i have successfuly made a mojito cupcake that i like.

I want to modify this to add strawberry puree in the batter and the frosting. Do you think they would still taste good?

WOW! I love Mojito occasionally. This really sounds interesting, cant wait to try this out! Thank you for sharing your invention

it's 350. sorry i forgot that part.

Not having a 'basic cupcake recipe'anywhere, I have to ask at what temp these are baked ?

mmmm these sound awesome! im off to the supermarket!!!

type of rum:

well, I use coconut, because it's my favorite. if you want a more traditional flavor i would reccomend a dark spiced rum.

What kind of rum, did you use or would you suggest, this recipe sounds amazing

I love these!
