For something try a non-frozen margarita with this recipe . . . .

This may sound nasty because it does contain beer but I copied it out of a book and tried one Sunday afternoon. It's heavenly.

12 oz. frozen limeade
one bottle of Corona
12 oz. of 7-Up (don't use Sprite)
12 oz. Cuervo Gold

do not mix in blender (7-up aamd beer combo blows the top and will spray a sticky mess. . . .Just mix up in a pitcher and Voila!

Try the limeade recipe using half lemonade. And add a squeeze of fresh lime to each margarita.

We like them on the rocks (LOTS of ice) in tall glasses, instead of blended into slush.

I've got a margarita alternative made with Cachaca - a Brazillian spirit made from sugar cane. A native turned me on to this liquor and an easy drink to make for parties. It is fantastic.

1 dozen fresh limes
1 cup of sugar
Lots of ice
Cachaca (ask at a good liquor store for the best brand)

Take a big pitcher, squeeze all of the lime juice in then toss in the rinds layered with ice to the top. Pour in the sugar then fill to near the top with cachaca. Stir and vary the sugar/ice/liquor ratio to taste.

Serve in glasses with extra ice. this goes fast so be prepared to make another pitcher.

I don't have the recipe, but the mango margarita (Last mango in paris) at Jimmy Buffetts margaritaville are my favorite. Does anybody know how to make them?

It's been a while since I've had a mangorita (Cha Cha Cha in Long Beach makes these, for example), but basically it's tequila (preferably 100% blue agave), mango puree (I think Hansen's sells this), a splash of lime juice (or sweet & sour) and ice. Blend, pour, enjoy!

I just had to post a reply about the beer in the marg mentioned above...there is a restaurant chain called Hops that used to have a drink called a brew-rita which was precisely that-beer blended in with a regular margarita and it was AWESOME. (Note-I hate beer by itself). Unfortunately not many people must have been willing to try it b/c they no longer make them---but I must say-TRY it-its fab!

I have heard of adding beer to margaritas. I cannot fathom the mix of flavors that makes it good-- but people like it, so there you go.

I like my margaritas strong, tart and cold-- but on the rocks, please. Blended ones give me brain freeze. However, mangoritas you have to have blended-- and they're just dandy (for some reason, no brain freeze)!

QED Margarita:

3 - cups of crushed ice, not cube (if your measuring cup is 1.5 cups like mine, then 2 to the brim)

1 - shot Cuervo (to the brim)
3 - shot Cuervo Margarita Mix (under the brim)

Put in blender on liquify. Makes enough for two standard Margarita glasses (see K-mart or Target for glasses).

Note: my shot glass is a bit large, I think it's supposed to be a candle holder.

And to make this post travel related, how about a "Smash" known all over the Carribean. My favorite of all the umbrella drinks.

1 oz Dark Rum
1 oz Light Rum
1 oz Malibu Rum
1/2 oz Apricot Brandy
splash of lemmon and lime juice
large bottle pineapple juice

This is great for a party punch bowl.

To decorate the top float ice cubes with a slice of lemmon or lime frozen in the cube.

Heavenly.
