Margarita Cupcakes! (A Second Time)

Ah the delicious world of boozy cupcakes ... I think they may be my favorite kind to make! They are just so fun and people are always pleasantly surprised to hear that, yes, there is alcohol baked right in!

Margarita cupcakes are a revelation ... I first made them for Cinco de Mayo last year (check them out here). I used the same recipe from Brown Eyed Baker, but I went for a different frosting. Instead of a tequila-infused buttercream, I went for a more basic, lighter heavy cream-based frosting infused with lime zest and freshly-squeezed lime juice. The lightness of the airy frosting was a complement to the cupcake.
