Absinthe cupcakes

Recently, my husband and I became obsessed with absinthe, and we ordered a few bottles. While I love the smell, I can't drink too much of it, unless it's mixed with something else. Since the traditional way of drinking it involves dissolving a sugar cube with water in the drink, I decided to make cupcakes with absinthe, since sugar already goes well with it. I took a regular vanilla recipe, added the absinthe, and made frosting as well. I tinted it green, because most versions of the drink are green, and added a little licorice bite on top, to reference the anise flavor. Oh, and I also used silver glitter :) Everyone loved them, and the flavor was much more mellow than the drink itself. A little unusual, but definitely tasty.
