Prohibition Bakery Reveals Its Secret Boozy-Cupcake Recipes

The Prohibition Era was full of genius, discreet ways of transporting and imbibing alcohol: Any complicated, but beautiful entrance into a New York speakeasy will tell you that. But when we discovered Prohibition Bakery on Clinton Street, we realized that the greatest beer barons of all time missed the most obvious and delicious way of sneaking booze — by infusing them inside a cupcake.
The brainchild of chef and wd~50-alum Brooke Siem and long-time bartender Leslie Feinberg, Prohibition Bakery blends spirits and sweets in their delicious creations. Menu items include the Pimm's Cup, Birthday Cake, Pretzels & Beer, and the Margarita. Of course, all the Prohibition Bakery recipes are strictly confidential — until now. Siem and Feinberg have leaked five exclusive recipes directly to R29. Click through for the how-to behind our new favorite concoctions.
