I know it's early, so I'm not necessarily suggesting you drink a margarita at 9 in the morning, or whatever time it is when you are reading this, but I did want to highlight 10 colorful, fun margarita cupcakes for National Margarita Day (today, February 22nd). Enjoy!
Recipe Girl isn't messing around: she's added a shot glass to her margarita cupcakes! Her recipe can be found here - it uses tequila and Grand Marnier.

Margarita cupcakes by Brown Eyed Baker, where you can get the recipe. From the post: "They are definitely not innocent. They are all things tequila and lime. The cupcakes are buttery and moist. The frosting is velvety and buttery (more butter!). And there is a prevalent lime/tequila taste throughout."
