Friday Night Tipple - Sangria Swirled Frozen Margarita

As we head into the weekend, it's the perfect time to make yourself a cocktail.

This week's favourite is the Sangria Swirled Frozen Margarita.


As seen on Dessert for Two
Recipe
You know those cans of frozen limeade concentrate?  Yeah.  Grab one.  After you empty it into the blender, fill up the empty can half way with tequila.  Fill up the rest of the can with triple sec.  THEN FILL UP THE CAN WITH ICE.  I swear, don’t forget the ice.  Blend, blend, blend.  Rim a glass with salt, and pour.
So, for these fancy pants sangria swirl frozen margaritas, I sacrified 1 cup of fruity red wine to make wine ice cubes.  It’s totally optional. But, wait, when in life are pink drinks optional?  Never.  Good answer.

Instructions
  1. First, dip two margarita glasses in water or lime juice, and rim the edges with salt or sugar (your choice).
  2. Next, puree the frozen red wine cubes with the triple sec, lime juice, and orange juice. Pour into a small glass and have ready on the side.
