Mimosa Cupcake Recipe

I was recently given a few cupcake recipes that will make you say WOW!
The recipes, that I was lucky to get my hands on, are featured in a special cupcake edition magazine by Betty Crocker.

3 tablespoons champagne or ginger ale
3 tablespoons orange juice
Edible glittter or coarse white sparkling sugar

    Looks yummy! I love any recipe that starts with a stick of butter or a glass of champagne. Even better when it's both!
