Strawberry Daiquiri Drunkcups

Nicole Rust


Every possible Friday night my husband and I, along with our friends get together for "Game Night". A night to eat, drink, and laugh. To forget about the work week and jump start the weekend. We are all transplants from other states (being all the guys are former or current marines) So we are each others extended family. So I started making drunkcups! An adult style cupacake. Perfect for that after dinner/pregame snack!

Sweet and super strawberry-y, you can most definitely taste the flavor of the daiquiri mix. The rum flavor is very subtle, so don't be deterred by that. I can't wait to serve these at my next party! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Strawberry Daiquiri Drunkcups


  1. Pre-heat oven as directed on box.
  2. Add the correct amount of butter/oil and eggs as directed on box.
  3. When it comes to the amount of liquid you need to use (the water) substitute the mixer and the rum. (my box says 1 1/4 c. water so I used 1c. mixer and 1/4 c. rum)
  4. Mix all ingredients together and spoon into cupcake holders. Bake as directed. It should make 15-20 cupcakes
  5. While the cupcakes are baking take the frozen strawberries in a bowl and cover with some rum. You will need enough berries for one on each cupcake. Let the berries soak in the rum and remember to stir them ever so often.
  6. * If you want a little extra rum in the cakes. Take a small bowl and fill it with rum. Before icing the cakes dip the tops of each one in the rum. It gives it just that extra kick! ;)
  7. Now for the icing:
  8. In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute.
  9. Add 6 cups of confectioners’ sugar, the rum, and the mixer. Beat on low speed until creamy. Gradually add the remaining confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, until the frosting is thick and creamy.
  10. Once the cupcakes are cooled completely...In a icing bag or (what I use) a gallon zip lock bag fill it with the icing (if using the zip lock, once it is full just cut the tip of one corner to make a small hole {about the size of your pinky finger tip})
  11. Ice the top of each cake and then place one drunk strawberry on each one and enjoy!!!!
  12. * If you are making these and you want to make them child friendly, replace the 1/4 cup rum in the cake with 1/4 cup water and the 1/4 cup rum in the icing with 1/4 cup milk.
