Non-Alcoholic Margaritas

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  We had Moyetes and these delicious Virgin Margaritas today.  The Margaritas were easy to make and very delicious!  The kids LOVED them so much that they hardly ate dinner.  Crazy kids.  I doubled the recipe and they still wanted more.  They especially loved the salt on the rim of the glass and the lime garnish. 

You'll need frozen lime concentrate, orange juice, ice cubes, fresh limes, and kosher salt for this recipe.  As you can see, we just drank these out of wine glasses- we don't have any margarita glasses on hand.  Sadly, one of the glasses met its demise today at the hands of our 5-year old. :(  I wish we had an Ikea here so we could get more!  We still have enough until the baby gets old enough to partake with us, though.  Lol!
Virgin (Non-Alcoholic) Margaritas
heavily adapted from CD Kitchen
Makes 5-6 servings- easily cut in half

1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 lime, cut into 6-8 wedges, lengthwise
2 cans (12 ounces) frozen limemade concentrate
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water
2-4 cups ice cubes (add to taste- more or less, depending on what you want)

1.  Place the salt in a shallow dish. Rub the rim of individual margarita glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rims into the salt; set the glasses and lime wedges aside.

2.  In a blender, blend the limeade, orange juice, water, and ice cubes on high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until well blended and the ice cubes are crushed.

3.  Pour evenly into the glasses and garnish with the lime wedges. Serve immediately.
