These 75 cupcakes have a kick - and they're not for kids! The product of Prohibition Bakery, a downtown hole in the wall, they're simply the best, the booziest treats in Manhattan. Each diminutive cake is a perfect, delicious balance of texture, flavour, and fragrance. That's why an astonishing variety of fans, from Food & Wine to Playboy, Newsweek, and Thrillist.com, have come together to heap praise upon bakers Brooke Siem and Leslie Feinberg for their creations. Make a "Dark & Stormy" (Gosling Rum, ginger beer, and lime), an "Old Fashioned" (whiskey, bitters, orange, and a whiskey-soaked cherry), or other cupcake and you'll become a convert from the very first bite.
Brooke Siem is a classically trained chef who, with longtime baker and bartender Leslie Feinberg, created New York City's first alcoholic cupcake company, Prohibition Bakery, in 2011. Since then, the Lower East Side cupcakery has garnered acclaim from Food & Wine, The Today Show, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed.com, Thrillist.com, Playboy, the Village Voice, Newsweek, the Washington Post, Serious Eats, and Maxim, among many others.
