And Even Better To Be Green and Frosty

When you take the candied limes and turn them into  Frozen Candied-Lime Margaritas!

We enjoyed these too much – and drank them too quickly to get a photo – but I wanted to share the recipe nonetheless.  Cause I *know* you all made those Candied Limes I talked about and are looking for things to do with them…*smile*

When I make my next batch, I promise to restrain myself and get the photo shoot in *before* I start drinking.  But in the meantime, these were delightfully green and *very* refreshing.  Another perfect weapon to have in your fighting-against-the-heatwave arsenal!

 Frozen Candied-Lime Margarita

1 cup ice

6oz Tequila

1/2 cup candied limes

1 cup homemade lime syrup

4oz Orange Juice

Juice of 1 fresh lime

2 cups more ice

Place the 1 cup of ice, tequila and candied limes in your blender.  Blast it a few times to start to break up the limes and ice.   Add the lime syrup,  orange juice and fresh lime juice, and blast a few more times.  You want to make sure the candied limes get pulverized or you’ll be disappointed to find too-big pieces in your finished drink.

Add the additional 2 cups of ice and blender away, until you’re left with a slushy, beautifully green frozen concoction.  Serve immediately, and enjoy the cool oasis in the midst of the summer heat.

Serves 4
