Boozy Margarita cupcakes are a perfect, festive treat

Margarita cupcakes. What could be more perfect for spring and summer (and of course Cinco de Mayo!)? You’ll find all kinds of reasons to make these fun, tequila-infused cupcakes. I mean, who doesn’t love a little spiked dessert? This recipe makes a deliciously moist cake with a light lime and tequila flavor — just like your favorite drink to sip during the summer months. They’re topped with thick and creamy buttercream that’s infused with more delicious lime and tequila flavor. You can have lots of fun decorating them, too. I used green sprinkles and a tiny lime wedge, but you top them with more lime zest, a section of paper straw, a drink umbrella, or a candied lime wedge. You might even go crazy for a party and top with an upended mini bottle of tequila. As for the tequila in these Margarita cupcakes, I usually stick with one that’s…

These are the most popular cocktails in America throughout the day, research shows

You probably wouldn’t do a shot of tequila with your morning toast any more than you would sip a mimosa at midnight. We have come to think of different alcoholic drinks as being better suited for different times of the day. So which cocktails are our a.m. and p.m. favorites, and which remain popular around the clock? Nielson, a global analytics company, arrived at this answer by compiling data collected from restaurants and bars over a four month span of time in 2018. So what are Americans drinking these days? Nationwide, the most popular cocktails 24/7 were the margarita, martini, old fashioned, mimosa, and the Moscow mule. Things get more interesting when broken down by depart. Nielson defined morning at 6 .m. to noon, afternoon as noon to 6 p.m., evening as 6 p.m. to midnight, and night as midnight to 6 a.m. The favorites were as follows: Morning Mimosa Bloody…

Woman runs 10k stopping for 14 tacos along the route

One woman found an excellent way to stay motivated during a long run. Anna Orso of Billy Penn planned on running the Philadelphia 10k, until she found out the time to register had passed. That’s when she decided to run the course her own way. Though she wasn’t officially a participant for the race, Orso planned to race and stop at every taco shop along the course. He chosen plan ended up taking her to 13 taco shops, for a total of 14 tacos and one margarita consumed over the course five hours. But 14 tacos proved to be challenging in itself. Between tacos seven and eight, and at only 3.4 miles down, Orso starts to worry about her food fatigue, but pushes herself along: I’m starting to get fatigued. I walk into the 7-Eleven at 11th and Washington in search of water. I’m parched, and feel like I haven’t consumed a…
