Infusing Alcohol into Cupcakes
You can either infuse tequila into the cupcake, into the frosting, or both. Either way, the resulting flavor is nothing short of delicious. Most of these recipes will have you brush alcohol onto the cupcakes after they have cooled. This will help make sure the alcohol stays inside the cupcake and isn’t baked off.

Margarita Cupcakes with Tequila
Make sure to let your guests know they’ve been spiked. Our favorite way to do this is with simple but decorative labels. You can also make a special batch without tequila for any guests under 21. After all, we don’t want a bunch of drunk kids running around. Especially since that means they took a cupcake you could’ve enjoyed.
These delicious recipes are the perfect way to add creative flair to your next party. Serve them alongside a perfectly blended margarita — and don’t forget the chips and freshly mashed guac.
