Each cupcake has half a shot added to it.
You won’t find any pink walls at FuManChu Cupcakes in Plaza Midwood in Charlotte. You also won’t find any red velvet.
Owner Andy Jackson likes keeping customers on their toes with their unique cupcake flavors. He also doesn’t mind getting them a little tipsy.
He’s one of a handful of shops in the country doing alcoholic cupcakes – complete with a half-shot added after the cake is baked. In fact, you have to be 21 to even buy a cupcake. That’s right. You’ll be carded in a cupcake shop.
Flavors range from his favorite Old Fashioned, Irish Car Bomb, Margarita, Breakfast Shot and more. And don’t worry – they have several “kiddie” flavors without alcohol.
You’ll find FuManChu Cupcakes in Plaza Midwood at 826 Lamar Avenue. They’re open Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
