Everyday Sunday Margaritas

A few years ago a friend shared her Margarita recipe with me. I am super finicky about my Margaritas. I am a true lover of the Mexican concoction but I don't just enjoy every one that hits my lips. I hate mixes and until she shared her recipe I always preferred just fresh squeezed lime to any other mix. So I took her secret and I improved upon it. and Voila! (don't know the spanish word for Voila!) that is how I got my secret easy Margarita recipe. Uncle RaRa calls often for this recipe and a friend also called on Super Bowl Sunday for it and she was actually the one who suggested that I put it here.

1 small can of Minute Maid Limeade
2 cups of Tequila
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
3 limes, juiced (sometimes 2 depending on how tart you like yours)
1 orange, juiced

Prepare Limeade according to directions.
Add all other ingredients.
Mix and serve over ice
Garnish with a lime wedge.

The limeade is key. I keep a supply in the freezer so I can make a batch at a moments notice. So next time you swing by can have a Margarita in seconds. Voila!

OH! and the best part is they freeze really well. so if you just feel like one or two you can shove the rest in the freezer for another day.
