To make virgin margarita cupcakes, replace the tequila with 1/4 cup more margarita mix, which is nonalcoholic. Some brands may be labeled daiquiri and margarita mix.

To make the frosting boozy, substitute 1 tablespoon tequila for 1 tablespoon of margarita mix.

If you don’t have a decorating bag and tip, spoon frosting into a large re-sealable food-storage plastic bag and cut off a corner of the bag to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
