When you think of cupcakes, you may be reminded of bake sales and kids' birthday parties. Snooze. But this recipe for boozy rum and Coke bottoms-upcakes will change all that.

The baking genius at Oh, Bite It! revamped the cupcake, taking it out of its paper wrapper and actually putting it into a glass — along with a ton of frosting, some powdered sugar and an overturned mini bottle of rum. Part cocktail, part cake, all good.

To get that classic rum and Coke flavor, you simply replace the liquid called for in a boxed cake mix with some Coke. Then you pile on some salted caramel frosting (the perfect match for gold rum), sprinkle it all with powdered sugar and plop in a bottle of rum.

The overturned bottle slowly drips into the glass, mingling with the salted caramel frosting and chocolaty Coke cake. It's actually really simple to make, but the presentation has a wow factor that's hard to forget.

It's the perfect boozy adult treat, for parties or just for nights when you feel like indulging. And you can choose your favorite kind of rum, though spiced, gold or even coconut rum sound the best to me. Either way, I think we can all agree that this is one boozy treat that's a must-try.
