Margarita Cupcakes

Very similar to my Lemon Drop Cupcakes, these little delights turned out a little st. patty's day. At least I won't get pinched while eating these!


The Margarita Cupcake
1 Box Duncan Hines White Cake Mix (Yep, still lazy)
2 shots of Tequila
3 tablespoons of Lime Juice
Dash of Salt

Follow the directions for the Cake Mix, substituting 1/3 of a cup of water for the tequila and lime juice. Add in a dash of salt for flavor, and a few green sprinkles for a mini burst of color.

Bake as directed. I found it's about 20 minutes for my mini-cupcakes.

Frosting
1 stick of butter (softened)
1 box of powdered sugar
1 shot of Tequila
2 tablespoons Lime Juice

To make a simple buttercream, whip the butter until fluffy. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, half a cup at a time. Add the tequila and lime juice and water as needed until the frosting forms stiff peaks.

Garnish
I rimmed the outside of the cupcakes with sugar :-)
