Cosmo Cupcakes!

My week of Valentine's baking wound up with these, made for a girl's night out. The only request I had was for pink and purple, maybe a little sparkles. I had complete freedom on the flavors--isn't that awesome?! I'm always dying to experiment out with new flavors. I decided on Cosmos, or Cosmopolitans. For those who don't know, it's a Martini with vodka, cranberry juice, lime. These don't have any alcohol in them, though! I used "Simple" brand cosmo mix in the batter, I like it because it's all natural-no artificial sweeteners or colors. It is a blend of cranberry and lime juices. The frosting was my buttercream base with fresh lime zest and juice. They are really good! I hope the girls like them. I kind of went out on a limb, sometimes that's risky!
