Cinco de Mayo Margarita Cupcakes

This year on Cinco de Mayo my friends and I participated in Sjogren’s Walk at the Philadelphia Zoo. After the walk was over we all went to Fairmount Park to have a picnic for one of our friend’s birthdays. Since it was Cinco de Mayo, I decided to make Mini Margarita Cupcakes.

The cupcakes recipe was adapted from a post on Pinterest. It was essentially a white cupcake with tequila and triple sec in the batter which was brushed with a tequila triple sec mixture. The icing was a basic buttercream with more tequila and triple sec. They were then topped off with some kosher salt and lime zest. They tasted just like a margarita and were a huge hit!
