Cowie said he formed the idea for Boozy Beignes during the early days of quarantine — instead of banana bread or sourdough, he opted to learn how to make donuts.

"When it came to frosting, my mind immediately went to alcohol — so yes, all the donuts contain alcohol [...] As you know, bars aren't allowed to sell alcohol to go... unless it's on a donut!" Cowie said.
