Linda and Mike’s Margaritas for a Crowd


This is an excellent recipe for a party.  The mix can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve the margaritas.  Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for the best flavor.


12-ounce cans limeade concentrate (buy in freezer section, defrost

in refrigerator if possible)

2 1/4
cups tequila 
1 1/2
cups Triple Sec
cup lemon juice
Crushed ice
Salt for rims
Lime, cut in eighths, to moisten rim of glasses before salting



Mix the limeade, tequila, Triple Sec and lemon juice in a container.  You can place this in the refrigerator if making ahead.  When ready to make margaritas, put 1/4 of the mixture in the blender and fill with crushed ice to within 2 inches of top.  Blend on high speed until combined and it has a frozen appearance.   Serve in glasses rimmed with lime and then salt if desired.  Repeat with rest of mixture.  Serves 24.
