Drunken Donuts

Flex Donuts

Zac Young, a contestant on Top Chef: Just Desserts and the executive pastry chef at Flex Mussels, has moved donuts from coffee break to cocktail hour. Following a pop-up in New York City's Grand Central Station this winter, Young is offering his alcohol-fueled "drunken donuts" on a secret menu at both Flex Mussels locations. The donuts are filled with adults-only custards inspired by popular cocktails such as margaritas and white russians. But you don't have to be in New York to try this boozy comfort food: Young has given us the recipe for his newest creation. The "White Lightning" is a Liquid Lightning energy drink and vodka cocktail in donut form. Make them at home for a fun late-night alternative to that cup o' joe.
