This was great!!!! My DH and I both really liked it. This is our favorite margarita recipe. I cut the recipe in half but it was just enough for us.l

wow this was great! I could only find a whitegrape/cranberry concentrate and it worked great! This is so far, my favorite homemade margarita recipe!

I was able to easily find the raspberry-cranberry concentrate in the frozen juice case at the grocery store. Made exactly as stated, only I cut the recipe in half as it was just DH & I drinking these at lunch today. Absolutely delicious! Addicting too! Half a recipe was perfect for two drinks each. The flavors of raspberry, cranberry & lime really do go well together & it is (still sipping on it as I type) very refreshing on a warm Spring day. Thanks for sharin', Bren! I think we'll be making this one a lot this summer. :) UPDATE: Have made this again already & have been keeping it in a Tupperware container in the freezer. LOL It looks a little strange... mommy using a toddler spoon & eating out of the fridge. But it's a nice, perfectly slushy 2-3 bite snack after dinner. Made for Zaar World Tour 5. - Ali Baba's Babes
