Margarita Cupcakes Made with Alacran Tequila Reposado


Cupcakes, Tequila and Lime! Need I say more?? Probably not, but you know me, I’m a stickler for telling you all about things I’ve made or have enjoyed that were made for me! As Empty Nesters one of the best things is that we don’t have to worry about judgements of those odd looks when we are enjoying an adult beverage in the middle of the week. But with this recipe, you can actually use tequila to make the cupcakes and then infuse the icing with tequila, top with a lime and call it a day. If you are anything like me, you will have a cupcake or two once they are finished and while they are baking, you might enjoy a shot or two of some amazing Alacran Tequila Reposado!

Alacran Tequila Reposado tastes great as a sipping tequila and or in a cocktail and it was one of the smoothest tequila’s I’ve ever tried. The bottle that I received in the mail was the Alacran Tequila Reposado that is aged 4 months in American Oak barrels and they have 5 different tequilas available to purchase. Alacran Reposado is priced at $49.99 and is available nationally and online. While my bottle is still about three fourths of the way full, I know that I’m giving a bottle to a couple of people this holiday season.
