Sex on the Beach Mini Cupcakes

We suggest garnishing these cupcakes with fresh peaches, but if the cupcakes are going to be sitting out for a while, you'll want to use dried peaches or skip the garnish altogether.

Tequila Sunrise Mini Cupcakes


Tequila Sunrise, made popular by Club Med and the movie Cocktail, is one of those drinks that you rarely see consumed in the wild. Although relatively tasty and very pretty, it's pretty much a sugar bomb and is probably best enjoyed in cupcake form.
