Blue Moon & Corona Cupcakes

 I made these for my husband's birthday! 

I used boxed cupcake mix and simply replaced the water with beer.
I made two different kinds...Corona and Blue Moon, next time I’d like to try Woodchuck Cider Beer!

You Will Need:

1 Box of Cupcake Mix
1/2 Cup Beer
3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
2 Large Eggs
1 Jar of Vanilla Frosting
1 Lime or 1 Orange (depending on which flavor you make) 

Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your cupcake tin with baking cups.

Blend the dry cake mix, beer, oil and eggs in large bowl.  Pour the batter into the cupcake cups, filling them 2/3 full.

Bake according to the directions on the box…I think it’s about 15 – 20  mins depending on your oven! To test if they are done…insert a toothpick into the center of one…if it comes out clean, they’re done!

Cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting I just bought regular vanilla and doctored it up with a couple teaspoons of lime juice and lime zest for the Corona cupcakes, and a of couple teaspoons of organge juice and zest for the Blue Moon!
