I'm sure you've never imagined eating margarita. But as for this recipe, we are eating margarita instead of drinking it! I bet you'll love these cupcakes as much as I do!
These cupcakes start off with a basic lime cupcake recipe. If you're an expert in lime cupcake baking, I'm sure you'll nail this. But if you aren't, don't worry because this recipe is super easy! The cupcakes are moist, soft, and you can definitely taste the lime in every bite. Also, you can add any kind of berry fruit in the batter if you'd like. Then, they are topped with an extremely delicious tequila lime frosting! I swear by this frosting and it's the perfect frosting for these citrus cupcakes! As for the lime flavoring, you have two options: lime extract/lime oil or lime juice and its zest. Both works but if you wanted to have a thick buttercream, I suggest using lime extract or lime oil. But if you aren't piping the frosting, you can simply use the lime juice. Both of these gives a strong lime flavor and it's a matter of preference now.
Since these have alcohol in it, make sure not to feed them to kids! Strictly for adults only!
