Preheat oven to 350F. Fill a 12-cup muffin tin with liners.
In a large bowl, mix together lime juice, lime zest, soy milk, oil, tequila, vanilla and sugar.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add to lime mixture and stir until just combined.
Divide evenly into muffin tins.
Bake for 20-24 minutes, until a tester comes out clean and the cakes spring back when lightly pressed.
Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
