makes 24 cupcakes

1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup Fat Mama’s Knock You Naked Margarita Mix   (http://www.fatmamastamales.com)
zest of 2 limes
2 cups milk
1/2 cup canola oil
4 teaspoons tequila
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Fill 2 12-cup muffin tins with liners, and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix together lime juice, margarita mix, lime zest, milk, oil , tequila, vanilla and sugar.

In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to lime mixture and stir until just combined. Divide evenly into muffin tins.

Bake for 18-22 minutes, until a tester comes out clean and the cakes spring back when lightly pressed.
Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Tequila Lime Frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
2 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons lime juice
3 Tablespoons Fat Mama’s Knock You Naked Margarita Mix    ( http://www.fatmamastamales.com )
3 Tablespoons tequila
4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
sugar, for “rims”

Cream the butter, milk, lime juice, margarita mix, and tequila in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.

Gradually add the sugar, scraping down the sides of the bowl every so often. Beat an additional 3-4 minutes.

Fill a pastry bag fitted with a #12 round tip. Pipe frosting onto cupcakes, and dip edges into green sugar to resemble salt on the rims of glasses.
