If Ernest Hemingway Had Been A Cupcake Man, This Would Be The Cupcake For Him
Check out this absinthe and champagne pastry
We all know that Ernest Hemingway loved to drink. Inspired by the American author’s creation of Death in the Afternoon, a cocktail with Champagne and Absinthe, NYC’s Prohibition Bakery is selling a limited edition cupcake. The boozy baked good features champagne cake with champagne filling, absinthe frosting and a champagne cube on top with a touch of lemon. The only thing missing from this combianation is a champagne room. Anyways...in honor of its one-year anniversary this Wednesday, the bakery is offering the cupcake – fittingly named “Death in the Afternoon” – for sale through the end of the week.
Located on the Lower East Side, Prohibition Bakery is already home to several alcohol-infused cupcakes, including a take on Pimm’s Cup and a Pretzels & Beer flavor, which contains pale ale, Nutella, pretzel and – get this – white truffle. Cupcakes are $2 each, three for $5 and a dozen for $20. Not bad for getting your day’s fill of both sugar and booze in just a couple of bites.
