Everything you love about the drink, wrapped up into these scrumptious little Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes. Yes, even a hint of tequila!
I love taking amazing drinks and other flavors and turning them into cupcakes! So I turned one of my favorite drinks into this amazing cupcake….and let me tell you…they are amazing! A hint of grenadine in the batter and a splash (or two) of tequila in the buttercream takes this cupcake over the top!
Today, in honor of my friend Aubrey’s birthday, I’m sharing this cupcake. Make sure to keep reading tons of other surprise birthday treats from some amazing bloggers!
Let’s get back to the cupcake, shall we. I used my favorite white cupcake recipe and tweaked it for this grenadine flavored cupcake. If you don’t have time for scratch cupcakes, just try replacing the liquid in your favorite box mix with grenadine. Warning…the cupcake centers may fall….that’s okay because you will just have room for more frosting! Mmmm…more frosting!
And this frosting is KILLER! You are gonna love it. Fresh squeezed oranges with zest plus a splash of tequila…oh man…I’m drooling just thinking about it again.
