Recipe by CountryLady
This is like having an after dinner drink and dessert all in one! Simple to make - yet quite elegant when served in cocktail or martini glasses. To make this nonalcoholic, use orange juice instead of the orange liqueur and pineapple juice in place of the tequila. Refrigeration time is not included.

Made this delicious dessert for company yesterday, everyone loved it!! Not too sweet, it had a nice tang, I used all strawberries and Grand Marnier with the Tequila, left the sugar off the rim on two and put it on, on two. I only had regular margarita mix, so the night before I put some in the freezer, it froze up nicely. Thanks for sharing a great company dessert, I will use it again!!
