strawberry margarita cupcakes

the mister doesn't drink.  he never has.  even if I make something with alcohol in it, he won't touch it.
so I made these little darlings for a cinco de mayo get together a couple of weeks ago.
and I hoarded a few for myself in the fridge.

these were made with vanilla cake mix.
I mixed margarita mix (with tequila already in it) into the cake mix instead of water.
I also put the marg mix in the frosting along with a few fresh strawberries.
There's salt on that lime... it really balances out the flavor.

those look amazing. jamie was straight edge in college and never developed much of a taste for alcohol either.
