Pink Lemonade Margarita

A delicious recipe for a Pink Lemonade Margarita made with tequila

1 (12 ounce) can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 (12 ounce) cans of cold water – (just use the empty pink lemonade can)
1 (12 ounce) can of tequila
1/2 (12 ounce) can of Grand Marnie
Ice cubes – or crushed ice
Salt to rim the glasses
1 lime, wedged

Pour the (thawed) frozen lemonade concentrate into a pitcher, and fill the can with cold water. Pour into the pitcher and repeat twice for a total of 3 cans of water. Fill the can with tequila, and pour that into the pitcher. Fill about half of the can with Grand Marnier, and pour it into the pitcher. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Or blend mixture with ice to make a frozen version. Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses with a lime wedge!
