This recipe is from the Betty Crocker Celebrates cookbook.
- 1 (11 1/2 ounce) can frozen cranberry juice concentrate, thawed
- 2 (12 ounce) canseach carbonated lemon-lime beverage
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup tequila
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- Pour all the ingredients into a 3 qt plastic container; beat with a wire whisk till well blended.
- Cover and freeze for at least 24 hrs, till slushy. Serve in margarita or cocktail glasses.
I messed this up a little because I did not look carefully at the instructions until right before my party, so I assumed it was a blender recipe, not a freezer recipe. It was no big deal, though. I just used ice cubes instead of water, and made 1/2 at a time (the whole recipe would not fit in the average blender). Everybody loved the taste, so I might try doing it again the "right way" soon.
We had these with Christmas lunch - what a wonderful drink! I added more fresh lime juice than required which made them tart enough for our taste buds. Will certainly be making these again. Thanks, Shirl for a great recipe.
Absolutely delightful. A wonderful combination of flavors. Not too sweet and not too tart, but just right. Going to make up a batch to take to our Family Christmas party. Should be a big hit. Thanks Shirl for posting
