Stop the Presses....
You're taste buds will NEVER be the same after this post.....
Last week, I had the immense pleasure in partaking in bunco group's annual Drunko game. This usually is played around a gorgeous pool...on a warm summer evening. Tiki torches are burning, the harmonious sounds of Jimmy Buffet playing in the background....
some hunky husbands/bartenders, to cater to our every whim....
and since I'm obsessed with Themes.....I had to bring a little sumthin sumthin...that screamed "drunko"
so why not combine my love of Cupcakes.....with one of the best summer drinks in THE universe....
Before I could say "guardar uno para el chef"
translation: "save one for the chef"
my bunco playing friends had snagged them all....only leaving me with a few crumbs...a lime wedge...and plenty of "oh my god"...and "those ROCKED"
The only other downside, besides not being able to partake in the overload of yumminess....
was trying to explain to my 4 year old, why he couldn't lick the batter.....
I could just imagine explaining to my husband, why our son was completely ripped....singing a bad rendition of the elmo song, and calling him stud....
