This is an adopted recipe. I think it looks fabulous for a Mexican/Tex-mex feast, particularly on a hot summer night, but have not yet tried it. Comments from those who get to it before I do are appreciated via a review. Thanks!

- 1 1⁄2 ounces triple sec
- 1 1⁄2 ounces tequila
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 cups whipping cream, whipped
- green food coloring
- 1 graham cracker crust (9-inch)
- whipped cream (for garnish)
- lime slice (for garnish)
- mint leaf (for garnish)
- Combine milk, triple sec, Tequila, lime juice, whipped cream and food coloring.
- Fill crust with mixture.
- Cover and freeze 4 to 5 hours or overnight. Let stand several minutes prior to cutting.

Love it! I used crushed pretzels for the crust as a different twist. Everyone loved it!
gets icky after a couple days in the fridge. very strong flavor. you don't need a huge piece.
I adapted this recipe by pouring the filling into individual sized graham cracker crusts and serving them at a Cinco de Mayo party. Everyone loved them and they were really very easy to make. This is also a very good dessert to make ahead since they need to be frozen. I left mine in the freezer over night and they were perfect!
