4-can margaritas

It took me a good number of years to truly fall in love with The Margarita. Once I did, I fell hard. And I became extremely picky. My margaritas cannot be too sweet. Or too tart. The tequila cannot overpower the mix. The mix cannot overpower the tequila. There must be salt on the rim. It must be on the rocks, although I will drink an occasional lightly blended version.

How coincidental that I married a man who loves margaritas, too! A man who makes the best margarita known to humankind. I'm not kidding.

Second to his margarita, this recipe is my favorite. It is not too sweet, not too tart and it is as easy as pie to make! Wait, pie isn't easy to make. Where did that phrase come from?

Choosing the right tequila is KEY to creating a tasty margarita. Dan and I have done plenty of "research," so you don't have to do a lot of tequila testing yourself! Unless you want to!

The absolute best margarita tequila is Sauza Hornitos. A more budget-friendly option, but still a really great one, is Sauza Gold.

For this delicious recipe, combine:

1 12-oz. can frozen limeade, thawed

1 limeade can filled with Squirt

1 limeade can filled with light beer

1 limeade can filled with tequila

I like to combine the ingredients in a large bowl and then blend half with ice and pour the other half over ice. When entertaining guests, it is always a good idea to offer both blended and on-the-rocks options.

If desired, salt the rim before you fill the glasses. Leave a little bit of room at the top of each glass for a splash of Grand Marnier orange liqueur. Squeeze the juice from ome lime wedge over the top and enjoy!

Unless you have an aversion to margaritas, you will not be disappointed!

This sounds delicious! It also sounds quite a bit like what we call Summer Brew!
1 can lime or lemonade
1 can(12oz) of beer
1 (limeade)can of vodka

pour ingredients in pitcher, fill balance of pitcher with water. Serve over ice and be careful. Amazingly good and potent!
