Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
Can I just just say I love the 5th of May...I love a day that pretty much gives me permission to drink Margaritas and eat chips and salsa ALL. DAY. LONG. Holla!!
Am I going to be able to do this? No. I have to be an adult and work. I am just guessing that it is probably highly frowned upon to drink Margaritas while working all day. Just a guess. Wouldn't that be an awesome job though, to work and drink a few margaritas.
So, since the majority of us have to be stuck at work not being able to consume said beverage, I have a solution for you. Behold Margarita cupcakes...not just any but Vegan. Vegan, because you know I can't have dairy...which totally sucks. My two favorite things...cupcakes and margaritas have paired up and the union could not have been any better.
1/4 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest, freshly grated
1 cup soymilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons tequila
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup margarine
1 tablespoon soymilk
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon tequila
tiny drop green food coloring
2 -2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 pinch kosher salt or 1 pinch coarse salt
1/2 cup large crystal decorator sugar (to decorate edge of cupcakes)Directions
P.S. I have no idea why the font and everything came out looking like this.
Hasta Luego Senoras!
