Our frosty margaritas are also simple to make, and you can even make a virgin batch for the kids. They're loaded with limes and lime juice, which are rich in vitamin C.
First, run a lime wedge around the edge of each glass. Then dip rims into a saucer filled with the salt. Put the remaining ingredients into a blender; blend until the ice cubes are chipped and the mixture becomes frothy. Pour the mixture into the prepared glasses; garnish with lime.
Ingredients: lime wedges, kosher salt, juice from Mexican limóns or fresh limes, tequila, Cointreau, superfine sugar, ice cubes.
