Strawberry Margarita Cupcake with Liquor

Strawberry Margarita Cupcake with Liquor Recipe

Around the house, there is always something sweet being baked or a treat placed on the counter. Kid’s know my house is the house to visit when you are in a mood for a treat. It just so happens that the adults know that as well. They come for miles and miles around to taste my sweet treats, mostly because we live a little bit away from them. Anyways, during one of my latest baking adventures, I wanted to try something different. Adult’s deserved a special treat, so I made a Strawberry Margarita Cupcake with Liquor.

On several different occasions, I have been told just how delicious my Sublime Skinny Sangria is and how I should make more drinks. After many weeks of debating on what drink to make or how to present it, I ultimately went with making a cupcake. They are not only fun to eat but taste exactly like what a Strawberry Margarita taste like. These cupcakes are so easy to make. Sometimes, I love to make a huge batch of basic frosting to use for occasions when the baking bug bites me and I want to bake. Are you ready to make my Strawberry Margarita Cupcake with Liquor?
