Margarita Cupcake (Made with Tequila)

Would you care for a Margarita cupcake? These are to die for! They’re not too sweet & have a great light, low calorie icing!

I found a recipe I sort of liked. Decided to add things I thought were missing and removed some stuff I didn’t like. This is what I came up with. If you have kids and don’t want to use the tequila you can substitute it for more margarita mix.


  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup nonalcoholic margarita mix
  • 1/4 cup of tequila
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 4 egg whites

For icing:

  • 1/2 container of low fat cool whip
  • 1/2 container of key lime yogurt (I like to use Greek yogurt cause it’s a bit thicker and has more protein)


Put it all in your mixer bowl and whisk on low for 30 seconds then on medium speed for two minutes. Scrapping down the bowl occasionally. Divide into 18 cupcake liners (2/3 of the way full) & bake at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes.

In a medium bowl whisk together cool whip & key lime yogurt. Ice cupcakes garnish with a bit of lime zest and a slice of lime, and voila! Tasty cupcakes that will impress everyone!
