These Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes with Strawberry Margarita Buttercream Frosting are the perfect dessert for a girl’s night, brunch, a backyard BBQ or any event just for adults!
What goes well with party time or girlfriend time? Margaritas of course! But what could make them even better? How about Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes?
These little bites of goodness are pure strawberry flavor.
They were a huge hit and everyone wanted the recipe.
Honestly, they were super easy since I used a box cake mix.
I was afraid since I ommited the milk, that they might not be moist enough, or might be too crumbly.
However, three batches later, all made the exact way, and I can say that these are perfect and easy.
Now, I am not saying I invented these. Only that I used a ready-to-serve Margarita to flavor them further and make them the best Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes they could be.
I chose to use a strawberry cake mix, to get a deeper strawberry flavor.
You could also use a white cake mix, but the strawberry flavor wont be as intense.
That is your choice.
I really wanted these to scream strawberry. And scream strawberry, they did indeed. Mmm… Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes!
The ready-to-serve Margarita I chose was Sandra Lee Cocktail Time Strawberry Margarita.
There was a reason for this. Sandra Lee Cocktail Time™ Strawberry Margaritas are infused with real strawberries, pure cane sugar, premium blue agave silver tequila and triple sec liqueur.
Most ready to serve cocktails do not have such quality, premium ingredients.
That said, you could probably use any kind, but I cannot tell you what the end result will taste like.
