If there is one holiday I can definitely get behind, it is Cinco de Mayo! A celebration of independence accompanied by Mexican food and margaritas – seriously, what could be better?
This May 5th you may want to end your celebration with margaritas in another form – cupcakes! I have an obsession with turning cocktails into cupcakes, so it was just a matter of time until I did gluten-free margarita cupcakes.
These cupcakes are bursting with lime flavor, sweet but not too sweet, and just a little boozy. If you want a G-rated, alcohol-free version, feel free to leave the tequila out, just add a tablespoon of vanilla to the frosting instead. They will be just as good.
Recipe notes: I used my own gluten-free flour blend, you can make your own home version or you can use your favorite store-bought gluten-free flour blend. If it doesn’t have xanthan gum, add ¾ teaspoon. Please, please, please, use fresh lime juice and zest the limes before you squeeze them. It will make a difference, trust me!
So cheers to you this Cinco de Mayo – may your fiesta be that much better with these cupcakes on hand!
