Margarita's 2 Ways


                                                                  Beer Margarita's

                  1 ( 12 fluid ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
                  12 fluid ounces tequila ( I used Cabo )
                  12 fluid ounces of water
                  12 fluid ounces of corona
                  1 lime, cut into wedges
                  Ice and salt for rim

     1) Pour limeade, tequila, water and beer into a large pitcher. Stir until well blended,
     and limeade is melted. Add plenty of ice, and garnish with lime wedges.


                                                              Ice Blue Margarita

                1 teaspoon of coarse salt
                4 ounces tequila
                2 ounces Triple Sec
                2 ounces fresh lime juice
                2 ounces blue Curacao
                2 teaspoons super fine sugar
                1 lime, cut into wedges
          
            Fill a shaker halfway with ice. Place Tequila, Triple Sec, blue Curacao, and
            sugar in shaker, shake hard for 30 seconds. Serve in salt rimmed Margarita
            glasses.

            I just thought I would share a couple of my favorite cocktails that we enjoy!
            Also, the weekend is upon us and I hope you all have the best couple days.
                                                Have a drink and relax!!
