I love a good Margarita, don't you? I'm not too terribly picky -- I like frozen, or not, strawberry, lime, or just about any other fruit flavor (maybe not banana). I don't however, like Margarita mixes. They leave that sticky, sour taste in my throat. Blech. It's so easy to make a good Margarita without mix, why sacrifice the taste?

My mom requested a
Margarrrita on her birthday, which we celebrated over the weekend. A frozen Margarita on the deck, on a gorgeous May evening -- not much better in my book. I really like this recipe -- it's pretty perfect, if you ask me. It's tart, but not too, and sweet, but not too. It's easy (no such thing as too easy).

Frozen Lime Margarrrita
2 to 3 large drinks

1 can frozen limeade
1 1/2 cups Tequila (I use gold, but white is fine)
1/2 c. Triple Sec
2 cups crushed ice (if your blender can handle whole cubes, use 3 cups)
kosher salt
lime slices

Put frozen limeade, tequila, triple sec and ice
in blender and blend on high until smooth.
Rub lime slice around edge of glasses and
dip rim in kosher salt all around.
Fill glasses with Margarita and garnish with lime.

Awesome recipe and perfect for summer! (except when it is 53 in June)

What brand of Tequila do you use?

Yes -- we had quite a surprising cold snap! I'm not picky about tequila (except I usually buy gold). For this recipe, I'm not sure good quality tequila is necessary. The last time I made Margaritas, I had to buy diluted tequila because the grocery store didn't carry "real" liquor. They were still very yummy.

I could have sworn that I commented on this...hmmm, must be the internet!

I make a very similiar margarita and LOVE IT! Except I don't like it frozen, over the rocks for me with some corn, black bean salsa. Oh yum!

I was just about to post our recipe at my other blog... crafty's cafe! I'll get to that soon.
