At last--warm weather has arrived in our corner of the world! These margaritas are not as strong as my normal recipe, and perfect to sip as you watch the sun set over our salt marsh at the beach. :> Being easy to make ahead is a big plus!
p.s.> You are on your own if you decide to knit with one of these in hand!

Trailer Park Punch
Makes 30

From The El Paso Chile Company Margarita Cookbook
"Sometimes everyone you know piles into a van and heads over to your place for a good time. With a mob on the way, a big ponche (punch) of some kind is just the ticket. This one goes together quickly and tastes great even when made with inexpensive tequila. It starts out a little stronger than you may want, but when the ice that keeps it cold begins to melt the drinks come out just right. (of course, you might want to serve it over lots of ice anyway to help with that.)"

· Two 12-oz. containers frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
· 3 cups tequila (I use white)
· 3 cups water
· 2 cups orange liquor, like Triple Sec
· 1 cup fresh lime juice

optional: slices of lime, lemon or oranges to garnish when serving

Combine all ingredients in a plastic or glass container and chill well (preferably overnight).

To serve: if pouring from a giant RubberMaid pitcher, serve each serving over LOTS of ice. Or, if you have some big bowl to hold it, you can add a frozen block of ice & fruit slices. (You can make ahead in an empty orange juice box, then tear off the cardboard when you need it.) Martha Stewart wouldn’t approve, but then again she’s been eating off a tin tray . . .

Double Woo Hoo's here. I love any recipe with triple sec or Cointreau or Grand Marnier or what the heck.....I love any orange flavored liquer!

This is perfect for Arizona summers......will try this weekend!

Thanks.

Trish, if you love orange liqueur and live in AZ with good citrus access, then do I have a recipe for you! I do a homemade one...hold on, lemme go find it. Haven't been able to find the ingredients since I moved to Iowa - bleh. Squeeze two mandarin oranges and two tangerines, and use a zester or potato peeler to remove the orange part of the peel. To the juice and zest, add 4 cups of vodka. Let it sit for a month. Strain and add 1 cup of simple syrup. I actually like this one better than the commercial versions...

"Can I blame you if it gets me in trouble?"

Trish - the price for blame-taking is that you have to send me some fruit so I can get into trouble with it too, ok?

Makes a good margarita...or mixed with cranberry juice...or in Squirt or your favorite citrus-y soda...

Holy cow! I had a really sucky week, and decided to make today all about me. I mixed a pitcher of these margaritas and floated on a raft in the pool all afternoon. I am getting close to sober now! These are not as strong as your usual recipe??? Oh my. LOL...I am struggling to sober up enough to get dressed to go listen to some band somewhere. I'm not sure on the details, I'm only sure that I'm not driving! Thanks for the recipe, but I think it should come with a warning label. If I picked up my knitting right now, no telling what would happen.

This is absolutely the BEST recipe for margarita's I've ever come across. I fixed it this weekend, and plopped the whole batch in the freezer. Since the tequila doesn't freeze, I can stir, ladle it into a Margarita glass, and have/give some whenever the need strikes. Thanks Meanmama!!!!

Trish, have you ever tried Sabra? It's an Israeli liquor made from oranges and chocolate flavoured. Yummmmm!

Healthy conservatism promotes the continuity of civilization, the importance
of community, the dangers of thoughtless change. It does not, or should not,
assert the right of white, Christian heterosexual males of a certain age to
limit the rights of everyone else. The past 100 years of social history has
been dedicated, on good days, to constraining the dominance of this
minority. Yesterday was a good day: J.Ibbotson, June 29/05, on the passing of the same-sex marriage bill.

Yes indeedy Barbara!...I love Sabra....I found out about that several years ago when I was in the military. Luscious stuff.

Of course....now, I'm looking forward to trying those ice wines...or should I say ice wine (singular)...so pricey.

Ah, but a little goes a long, long way. It's incredibly . . .umm rich? That's not quite right, but i don't know how else to describe it.
