Posted by jennrocqueI was asked to share this recipe after posting pictures. This is a tweaked version of other recipes I found online. I took what I liked of several and came up with this one. It's by far my favorite cupcake recipe. You can sub in any cocktail you like.
- Cocktail Cupcake Recipe 1 Box white cake mix 1 1/2 cups Margarita (mix up a margarita of cocktail of choice to your liking use a cup and a half and save any extra for icing) 3 egg whites 2 Tbl vegetable oil 1 Tbl extract or zest (depending on the flavor I use lime zest of margarita, orange extract for fuzzy navel ....you get the idea) Combine all ingredients mix on low for 30 sec and high for 2 min. (bake according to box instructions for size of cake or cupcakes) Frosting 8 oz Cream Cheese 1 stick butter 2 Tbl of extract used in cake 2 Tbl Cocktail 1/2 cup whole milk 5 cups Powdered Sugar (I add more sugar or cream to get desired consistency)
Cake: Combine all ingredients mix on low for 30 sec and high for 2 min. (bake according to box instructions for size of cake or cupcakes) Frosting: Mix all ingredients and add more sugar or milk to get desired consistency.
