Alcohol based cakes

My little brother is turning 21 this weekend, and I thought it would be appropriate to make a cake with some kind of alcohol in it. I was going to do the Irish Cake Bomb (Guinness chocolate cake with Bailey's icing), but I found out today he doesn't like Guinness. So now I'm trying to think of a new idea. Maybe a Kahlua cake? Or a rum cake made with Malibu? Something else with Bailey's? Or maybe Amaretto? What kind of recipes have you guys had good luck with? Thanks in advance!
