Corona Cupcakes with Captain Morgan Lime Frosting

My neighbor turned 50 earlier this month and her party was this weekend.  Since I love baking I offered to make cupcakes.  The party was going to be mostly adults so I was trying to find something a little unique.  These turned out great and were really easy!

1 Boxed White Cake Mix
1 Bottle of Corona
Juice from 1 lime
Prepare cake as directed by the box instead of water add 1 bottle of Corona and juice from 1 lime
(pour slowly or you will get a lot of head from the beer)

Bake as directed on the box

Let the cupcakes cool and frost!  I made a Cream Cheese Frosting infused with Lime Juice and Captain Morgan Lime Rum! It turned out fantastic!

1 Stick of Butter
1 8oz Block of Cream Cheese
5 Cups of Powdered Sugar
(less if you want it thinner more if you need a thicker frosting)
Juice from 1 Lime (add more if you like)
1 1/2 T Captain Morgan Lime Rum (add more if you like)

If you are going to use a Cream Cheese Frosting also and are not going to serve the cupcakes right away they should be refrigerated. Or you could hold off frosting until right before you serve and just keep the frosting in the fridge and cupcakes sealed tight in air tight container. Remove the frosting from fridge a few min before you are going to frost so it is easier to pipe or spread.

Hope you Enjoy!
