DULCE VIDA TEQUILA LIME CUPCAKES

These deliciously tasteful Tequila Lime Cupcakes will have you dreaming of eating them on a beach in Puerto Vallarta with your favorite sunglasses and summer body, while sipping on your Dulce Vida cocktail. Remember, we're dreaming here! The summer body will come later.




I'm not a big drinker, well to be completely honest, I'm not a drinker at all. Alcohol always seemed to taste like medicine to me. So its funny that I ended up becoming the alcohol infused cupcake queen. All though I do like my alcohol infused cupcakes, tequila being one of my favorites. Pretty much the only way alcohol will ever

touch my lips.




The cake in these cupcakes are not your ordinary cake. I added in a little, well a lot of Tequila Lime to the batter for that extra kick, once you bite into these mouth-watering delights. The frosting is your basic vanilla buttercream, but instead of the vanilla, you just add Tequila. Its that simple and just as tasty as your imagining right now. Add a lime to the top and devour.
