Spiked Margarita Cupcakes Recipe

Margarita-Cupcakes
This Margarita Cupcakes Recipe is perfect for your New Year's party! Grab these, and pass them around for the toast of the party. They are also a nice treat for anytime you really just need a little “me time”, to just sit down, relax and take the whole world in. You can really glam these up by serving them in jewel colored margarita glasses, and garnishing them with a wedge of lime fruit slice and a pretzel as a straw.
