Pink Lemonade Margarita

When Mom and I get together, we often like to try out a new cocktail.  We both love margaritas and wanted a variation of that traditional recipe.  We put our heads together and decided that a refreshing pink lemonade margarita is just right for this wonderful summer heat.  We decided that pink lemonade combined with tequila, triple sec, and lime would be a cocktail loaded with flavor.  After trying a few combinations, we came up with the perfect recipe and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  One tip that we think is important for you to know is that using fresh lime juice tastes much better than the bottled kind.  To make it easier to squeeze the limes, we use one of these.  It is so worth it.
