Celebrate National Margarita Day (February 22) in style with Margarita Cupcakes – a sweet mix of lime and tequila!
There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot day than an ice-cold margarita and it’s hot pretty much every day in Cambodia (and Texas). While we don’t drink very often, my mother and I still splurged on the occasional margarita to cool off after a hot day. With all the fresh fruit here, the flavors are amazing – passion fruit, mango, pineapple and of course lime.
I’ve been home for several months now and it’s National Margarita Day so I wanted to recreate the margarita flavor in a cupcake. Fortunately, Baking the Goods has a great recipe for margarita cupcakes that I modified to use ready-to-drink margarita wine cocktail from Costco. You should check out her Baking the Goods’ blog. She has lots of yummy recipes!
Why is there a National Margarita Day? I don’t really know. One source said it was founded by a few bartenders and therefore it is hard to track down the origins of the holiday. Even so, it’s just a day to enjoy the classic drink and all of it’s variations in drink and baking form!
If you want to serve these cupcakes to children or just don’t want the alcohol, you can substitute limeade for the margarita wine cocktail.
Don’t forget to share pictures of all of your margarita and baking creations on social media using #CC&M, #ChocolateChocolateandMore, #NationalMargaritaDay!!
I can’t wait to see how everyone celebrates!
