Happy Hour: Pink Lemonade Margarita

So yesterday Yum shared a recipe for a non-alcoholic pink lemonade stating that When the heat gets up there (and I know, some people enjoy this weather, but not me) I really need something that can quench my thirst. The some people she is talking about here is me! I love this weather and nothing beats sipping a cold margarita on a hot day - close your eyes and you can be instantly transported to Mexico. Luckily reader, fairy_MK recently shared her recipe for a pink lemonade margarita over in the Let's Have A Drink group on TeamSugar. According to MK even the macho beer drinking men were downing these margaritas! Thanks MK for the awesome recipe! To take a look,

I made these last year during the summer. They were such a hit, even the normal beer drinking 'macho men' liked them.

Pink Lemonade Margarita - 5 servings 1 cup each
Original recipe from Kraft Foods.

1 tub CRYSTAL LIGHT Pink Lemonade Flavor Low Calorie Soft Drink Mix
1-1/2 cups cold water
1/2 cup cold orange juice
2 Tbsp. tequila
1 Tbsp. lime juice
5 cups crushed ice


PLACE drink mix, water, orange juice, tequila and lime juice in blender container; cover.

BLEND on high speed until drink mix is dissolved.

ADD ice; cover. Blend on high speed until thickened and smooth. Serve immediately.

* This can be made without the tequila for those who enjoy their drinks without spirits.

Hmm, we will have to consult mk_fairy about the ratio of lemonade concentrate to tequila, perhaps it's written incorrectly? As for making it on the rocks go for it ccsug!

Can you leave out the crushed ice and have it as non-blended?? I don't like blended margaritas.

OMG, just the name of it made my mouth water. But I'd add a buttload more tequila than called for. But that's just me. And definitely a blanco tequila, no gold! "Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"

Sounds good but one tub (for 2 quarts?) mix to 2 Tablespoons of tequila?

I have most of these ingredients at home! Perfect for warmer weather (once we get it of course!) *I reject your reality and substitute my own*
