Recently, I wrote an article about a drunken cupcake that included whiskey, and people seemed to really take to the idea of adding booze to their baked goods. I knew there was a reason I love the internet as much as I do. All you like minded people with your love of cupcakes and alcohol, let’s be friends forever.
It sparked the idea of sharing more of my drunken dessert ideas, whether it is recipes I’ve personally tried or things I think would taste great, I’ve got you covered in the boozy dessert category.
Today we focus on the margarita cupcake. Yes, we are going to put tequila into some frosting and you’re going to love it.
There are a few different ways to make a margarita cupcake. Some recipes call for margarita mix in the batter, while others simply add some lime juice and a good ol shot of patron into the equation.
We personally love putting liquor into our frostings, but then again, we drink tequila with soda water and a splash of lime juice, so don’t listen to us. What can we say, we love the burn of hard liquor.
Alright, so let’s do a run down of some recipes we think would work great, no matter how much you love or hate a margarita.

Wilton’s Margarita Cupcake – This one uses margarita mix and leaves the frosting up to you.
