  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 325° and prepare cupcake pans with liners.
  • Zest lime, then juice it. This is it's own step because sometimes we forget and it's a facepalm moment ??‍♀️.
  • Place butter and sugar in the mixer and beat until creamed. While butter is mixing, sift flour, baking powder and salt into a separate mixing bowl.
  • Put egg, milk coconut extract and tequila in a bowl and whisk together.
  • Add flour mixture and egg mixture about 1/3 at a time and beat until just mixed in.
  • And lime juice and zest to bowl and mix just until smooth, you don't want to overmix!
  • Scoop batter into cups and bake for 22-24 minutes.
  • Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Once the cupcakes have fully cooled, frost and enjoy!
