Homemade Pomegranate Liqueur

I always try to make things work with what I have, and this recipe is simple enough that nothing too technical is necessary.

These are simple cupcakes that begin with a box of white cake mix. The icing is a Lime Buttercream. I thought this might be a fun way to serve them too, but then things might get kind of, um, interesting when you have your guests licking the bottoms of the shot glasses. Have fun with these… They were a big hit with my taste testers!
