Wishkah River Distillery Infused Cupcakes

Located just down the road is a new distillery Wishkah River Distillery in Aberdeen, Washington

"Wishkah River Distillery is a craft distillery located in Aberdeen, Washington. We specialize in craft spirits created from grain to bottle right here in our distillery. Our signature product is a vodka made from 100% Washington honey. Vodka from Washington Grains, Vodka from Washington Honey, Un-Aged "Bad Water" Whiskey from Washington Grains,"Bullfinch 83" Craft Gin, seasonal Cherry Brandy, and coming soon "13 Corners" Aged Malt Whiskey"

Working with these fine folks, I came up with two cupcakes using their products.

Wishkah Chocolate Nirvana Cupcakes
A chocolate cupcake with mini chocolate chips, Wishkah River Whiskey, and fresh ground ginger topped with chocolate buttercream, chopped candied ginger and a pinch of bacon salt.  It is a sweet, spicy, smokey treat.

Wishkah Cranberry Harbor Cupcakes
A white cake with Wishkah River Distillery Honey Vodka, lime juice, vodka infused dried cranberries with lime buttercream and a pinch of lime salt adorned with vodka infused dried cranberries.  It is a sweet and tart cupcake, a great choice for those who think cupcakes are to sweet.

  1. These sound yummy! I'd love one of each. Thanks for sharing at Two Cup Tuesday at Pint Sized Baker! Hope to see you there again on Monday night!

  2. I'm hearing about the dish for the very first time. Using whiskey with the cupcakes doesn't sounds like a good idea but maybe its worth trying. I will try it sometime.
