Tequila Sunrise & Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes

It’s Tipsy Friday at Never Dessert You.   On Tipsy Friday’s you will be delighted with an alcohol infused dessert.  It’s the end of the week and you are looking forward to the weekend but you need a cocktail for that long week.  Well today you can get rid of that guilty pleasure you desire and have your cocktail and a sweet treat all in one. 

So why not start your Friday off with Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes.   What you say it’s too early for some tequila.  Of course not, I know you want your Friday to start off right.

These cupcakes have a powerful taste and don’t they remind you of a good ol' tequila sunrise.  This is a regular moist vanilla cake with orange zest, infused with orange juice a ½ cup of tequila (not a lot right) and divided with red and orange batter.  The glaze is incorporated with lime juice and tequila with some powdered sugar and little lime zest for decoration.

Rise and shine it’s a beautiful morning for some moist Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes.

But wait there is one more.  You can’t just have one drink.  You should not mix up your drinks buts its cupcakes so why not.

Even though strawberry season is over, I still think you can’t ever go wrong  with some Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes.

For these cupcakes I heated up some fresh strawberries, dark rum and sugar until the liquid is absorbed into a strawberry mixture and mixed it into the batter.  The frosting is a whipped cream.  Then I made a strawberry rum syrup glaze to pour over the frosting.
