Jack Daniels and Cherry Coke Cupcakes

So today I was casually strolling around on my lunch hour browsing a book shop when I picked up the coca-cola cook book. I'd seen this come out a few years ago when everyone was talking about ham cooked in coca-cola, however back then the book came with a hefty price tag (well for the book world anyhow). Apparently now a days, this rather quirky little book can be picked up for £3! Which is less than my morning gingerbread lattes. 

Flicking through the pages I noticed the cherry coke cupcakes and suddenly the book fell into my shopping basket. Somehow before the day was over I'd decided that what cherry coke cupcakes actually needs, is something a little more alcoholic, which has come in the form of Mr Daniels.
