A lemon drop is a cocktail drink made with vodka, lemon juice, and sugar. I'm sure it's everybody's favorite drink. I've had a taste of this once at a party, and I really liked it. The alcohol content isn't strong enough, and since lemon is an acid, it takes the edge off of the vodka. I like it so much that I figured a cupcake version of this would taste amazing! With an additional flavor of the summer fruit, strawberries!
These cupcakes are moist and sturdy. If you're used with baking with fruits, you are well aware that fruits might sink down at the bottom, but not with this recipe. The strawberries remain suspended in the cupcake batter. These cupcakes are so gorgeous once they are baked. They are made even better with a lemon drop frosting, which gives you another taste of vodka, aside from the cupcakes itself. Finally, top with a strawberry slice for garnish!
Since these cupcakes have vodka in it, it's safe to say that they are an adult dessert only. The vodka isn't strong enough to get you tipsy but as a precaution, don't feed these to kids!
