Baking With Spirit: The June Challenge

When I started this challenge I didn't realise what a collection of spirits I would end up with. I now have such a collection that I could do with a dedicated alcohol cupboard, or even a nice wooden wine rack. For now, the bottles are collected on one of the shelves in my room, helping to hold up my books:

Realising the collection I've built up over the past nine months, I thought it might be fun to try combining a few of them for this month's challenge (this might also ease up the number of belongings to transfer to my new home when I move house next month). For this month's Baking With Spirit, I'd like you all to bake something based on cocktails. To add to the challenge, it would be great if you could limit the ingredients of your cocktail to spirits that you already have in the house. If your collection is rather meagre, though, I'll let you off if you need to go to the shops first!

The main rules for the challenge are as follows (you can see the full set here):
  1. Bake or cook something food-related which is based on a cocktail
  2. Write a post about it on your blog and link back to my blog, Cake Of The Week, and mention Baking With Spirit
  3. Email the link to me at cakeoftheweek@hotmail.co.uk and include your name, your blog and the photo you want me to use in the roundup. If you tweet me @CakeOfTheWeek and/or use #bakingwithspirit I will endeavour to retweet.
  4. The deadline is midnight on the 28th of the month.
Have fun, and don't forget to share the challenge with your friends!


  1. Wow. Definitely keen for this! So much to chose from though - like you I've an ever-expanding collection of random alcohols (except mine are just dominating a cupboard of my desk).

    P.S. Thanks for the blogroll mention!

    1. No problem! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
