by Adel Manoukian It's a cupcake re-imagined. Classically trained chef Brooke Siem and longtime baker and bartender Leslie Feinberg are the creative minds behind Prohibition Bakery that serves customers alcoholically flavored artisan cupcakes like Margarita and Mojito. Their new-age cupcakes are based off of what flavors compliment each different type of alcohol. For example, the Strawberry Daiquiri is a strawberry and lime flavored cupcake enhanced with rum. And for those looking to fulfill their sweet tooth with out alcohol, the ladies have put out two unique virgin flavors-For the Love of Bacon, which consists of bacon, bittersweet chocolate and toffee and L'Italiano, a cranberry, rosemary, and almond-flavored cupcake. The bakery, founded in 2011, takes orders 48 hours in advance but will soon open up shop on 9 Clinton Street in the Lower East Side. The minimum to order is two dozen and the rate is $38. But if you aren't hosting anything big, and just want to try one of their savory treats, find the business at street fairs. The duo recently sold cupcakes at the Hester Street Fair on July 12th in the Lower East Side. Just make sure to bring your ID.
