Drunken Gingerbread Men Cupcakes

These are adult cupcakes for sure, considering they have over a cup of Rum mixed into them. There's nothing quite like a cocktail and dessert all in one! Actually, the rum flavor ends up being very subtle, but adds a great background flavor and a moistness to the spicy cake!

Prepare your cupcakes according to the box instructions, but replace the water with Rum.
Stir the ground ginger into the batter, and fill your cupcake liners.
