Gin & Tonic Lime Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • CAKE BATTER
  • 2 tablespoons of gin
  • 4 tablespoons of tonic water
  • 6 ounces of unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces of sugar
  • 6 ounces of self-rising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 zested limes

  • FROSTING
  • 2.5 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of gin
  • 1 lime juice
  • Drop of vanilla extract

Directions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 170c and line a cupcake tin with 12 cases. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and blend until light and creamy. Whisk in one egg at a time, then sift in the flour and fold. Stir in the tonic water and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from tins and place on a cooling rack. Skewer several times and brush on as much gin as you’d like.

    For the icing, soften the butter, add in the icing sugar and whisk together. Squeeze the lime juice into the icing and add the gin. Whip again until soft, light and fluffy. Pipe onto the cupcakes and add a slice of lime with some zest for garnish.
