Root beer cupcakes

I try not to eat sugar, or flour, or practically any of the other ingredients in cupcakes -- but this recipe for "Root Beer Cupcakes" has me drooling and wondering how long the sugar-coma would last.

Root beer floats are one of those things that my brothers and I loved as kids. I don't know about them, but for me, its still something that I love to have on occasion. That's why I wanted to make a cupcake that tasted like a root beer float. I mean come on, nothing is more fun than a cupcake, or root beer floats… why not combine the two. Now, I did find a couple recipes online, that just added a can or two of root beer to the batter. Not good enough for me… the flavor of the root beer kind of faded away. And I was super picky about the flavor on this one. It's taken several tries at this recipe to get it right…
