Margarita Cupcakes

So I made two margaritas to start with...one for me and one for the cupcakes. I made a yellow cake batter and substituted some of the liquid with some margarita. I actually had made some candied lime slices as a garnish, but they didn't dry in time...so I took the sugar syrup and added some margarita to it and brushed it over the top of the cupcakes. Then I made a simple powdered sugar buttercream and added some lime oil, lime zest and margarita and rolled it in a sugar/salt mixture.
