Every possible Friday night my husband and I, along with our friends get together for "Game Night". A night to eat, drink, and laugh. To forget about the work week and jump start the weekend. We are all transplants from other states (being all the guys are former or current marines) So we are each others extended family. So I started making drunkcups! An adult style cupcake. Perfect for that after dinner/pregame snack!

How to Make Margarita Drunkcups

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven as directed on box.
  2. Add the correct amount of butter/oil and eggs as directed on box.
  3. When it comes to the amount of liquid you need to use (the water) substitute with the mixer and the tequila. (my box says 1 1/4 c. water, so I used 1c. mixer and 1/4 c. tequila)
  4. Mix all ingredients together and spoon into cupcake holders. Bake as directed. It should make 15-20 cupcakes
  5. * If you want a little extra tequila in the cakes. Take a small bowl and fill it with tequila. Before icing the cakes dip the tops of each one in the tequila. It gives it just that extra kick! ;)
  6. Now for the icing:
  7. In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute.
  8. Add 6 cups of confectioners’ sugar, the tequila, lime juice, lime zest and the mixer. Beat on low speed until creamy. Gradually add the remaining confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, until the frosting is thick and creamy.
  9. Once the cupcakes are cooled completely...In a icing bag or (what I use) a gallon zip lock bag fill it with the icing (if using the zip lock, once it is full just cut the tip of one corner to make a small hole {about the size of your pinky finger tip})
  10. Before icing the cake sprinkles​ just a tad of salt then Ice the top of each cake and then place one lime wedge on each one with a few more sprinkles of salt and enjoy!!!!
  11. * If you are making these and you want to make them child friendly, replace the 1/4 cup rum in the icing with 1/4 cup milk.
