Margarita Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 T. Tequila (Use margarita mix to substitute the Tequila and lime juice if you prefer or want an alcohol free version )
  • 1T. fresh lime juice
  1. Beat butter and shortening until smooth, then add powdered sugar along with tequila and lime juice or margarita mix. I added a drop of green and a drop of yellow food coloring to achieve the light, lime colored green frosting. Once you’ve frosted the cupcakes sprinkle on with coarse salt.
