Cinco de Mayo is a heading our way fast! This year you can take your Cinco de Mayo dinner, party or celebration to the ultimate level with Margarita Cupcakes.

The Best Type of Margarita…

I think it’s safe to say tat I m not the only person who loves going out with her friends or spouse and enjoying a delicious Margarita or two. I’m always a frozen Margarita kind of girl. The potential for brain freeze is a great way to keep me from drinking to quickly. My best friend is the complete opposite of me and likes her Margaritas on the rocks instead. One thing both of us always agree on is eating my Margarita Cupcakes.

Make These Margarita Cupcakes as Unique as You …

Margarita Cupcakes take the boring everyday cake mix and make it extraordinary with the sweet taste of Margarita mix in both the cake batter and frosting. The finishing touch that really knocks these cupcakes out of the park is the sprinkling of sea salt and lime zest.

To make the cupcakes and frosting you can use your favorite homemade or store-bought Margarita mix. You can have it with or without the tequila too. It’s totally up to you but the liquor will bake out in the cake. Take the cupcakes to the next level by adding in a fruit extract to the frosting or chopped up fruit to the cake batter.

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

The Irish are known for their aptitude in drinking but even some of us with some Irish blood flowing through our veins are what is commonly referred to as a lightweight when it comes to drinking. I fully own that I am a fruity, girly drinking mess. Shots of whiskey… No thanks, I’ll pass. A pint of Guinness Beer? Are you out of your mind? Something with booze that doesn’t seem like booze? Now, my curiosity is peaked. So how about some Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots? Oh yeah! Now that’s my speed.

Jello shots have been around for quite a long time now and are always wildly popular at parties! They always add some fun and tasty whimsy to a party. Now imagine that with pudding instead and needing a spoon to eat a creamy treat that is packed full of some kick.

These Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots are easy to make, have two different puddings, three types of booze and chocolate sauce to really make these the talk of your get together.

Taking my cue from my Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes I decided to use the same flavors and make them mini and delicious for some St. Patrick’s Day fun. The plays of alcohol, chocolate and vanilla really makes for a tasty treat that packs quite the little punch.
