Margarita cupcakes are perfect for your Cinco de Mayo party. Your fiesta will go down in history!
Warmer days are officially here, and although summer is officially still more than a month away, it’s certainly feeling mighty fine. With the arrival of warmer days, weekends are now spent outdoors. We’ve already had the grill going and started having people over more. Warm weather brings neighbors and friends out of their winter cocoons and we all find ourselves reconnecting after months of being cooped up indoors.
For me, there’s nothing quite like a cookout to make me feel like warmer days are here to stay. I love sipping a cocktail out on the deck while chatting with friends. Drink in hand, it feels like a party. Not to mention, it’s May, which means Cinco de Mayo!
You don’t have to be Mexican to enjoy this festive holiday. Gather your friends, whip up a batch of charred corn salsa, and set out some tortilla chips to munch on while you fire up the grill.
Of course, there should be libations as well. It is a Mexican holiday after all, so what more fitting drink than a margarita? My personal favorite are strawberry basil margaritas. The sweet strawberries with the fragrant basil make this classic drink something extra special.
I personally have never met a margarita I didn’t like, but if you’re more of a traditionalist, you like your tequila with lime instead of strawberries and herbs. If that’s the case, then these margarita cupcakes are right up your alley!
Fluffy white cake with the bright flavor of lime and margarita mix, topped with a tequila-spiked margarita frosting. These cupcakes are a great way to keep the party going.
You can feel free to leave the tequila out too and still enjoy the flavor of a margarita shining through. The finishing touch is a small sprinkle of salt and a slice of lime for an authentic margarita experience.
Don’t like your margaritas with salt? Give them a sprinkle of sparkling coarse sugar! These cupcakes are wonderfully light and vibrant with the citrus flavor of lime making them the perfect cupcake for a spring or summer get together.
