Drunken doughnuts: These sweet treats aren't made for kids

Level up your average doughnut with a delicious glaze for National Doughnut Day!

MOLINE, Ill. — Friday, June 3 on Good Morning Quad Cities, News 8's Linda Swinford and Morgan Strackbein had a little fun with doughnuts for National Doughnut Day.

While the fried doughy sweets might be a childhood favorite, this easy and boozy recipe isn't for the kiddos! Here's how to make the delicious glaze guaranteed to level up your average storebought doughnut.

What you'll need:

  • Storebought doughnuts (Unglazed is best!).
  • Powdered sugar.
  • Liquor of your choosing (Kahlua, salted caramel vodka, Rumchata, whatever you like!).


Mixed together powdered sugar and your liquor, getting the ratio right so you have a smooth glaze. Brush or drizzle the glaze on top of your doughnuts, and enjoy!
