link on recipezarr:
1 package lemon cake mix
1 (4 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup frozen limeade concentrate
1/4 cup water
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup gold tequila
2 tablespoons triple sec

Tequila-lime glaze
1 1/2 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon triple sec
1/4 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease& flour a bundt pan.
2Set aside.
3Combine cake mix, pudding mix, vegetable oil, limeade, water, eggs, tequila and triple sec in a large mixing bowl.
4Beat for 5 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer.
5Pour batter in prepared bundt pan.
6Bake for 45-55 minutes or until inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean.
7Cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes.
8Remove from pan and cool completely.
9Spoon tequila lime glaze over cooled cake.
10Glaze: Combine tequila, triple sec, lime peel, and sugar ina bowl.
11Stir until well blended.
12Add more powdered sugar for a thicker glaze

* I make two glazes. I don't know it if was necessary, but I decided to do it...not sure why really...Maybe for moistness. I mixed 1 sick of butter with 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of tequila, 2 T. of triple sec, and 1/4 cup of limeaid water mix over heat until it was bubbly. Then I poured it over the cake just after it came of out the oven, before I removed it from the bunt pan. It was good.
