Salsa Borracha and Margaritas

margaritas and Salsa Borracha

No Mexican meal is complete without Margaritas and Salsa.  Lola has a special recipe for both.  Salsa Borracha (drunken salsa) is a family favorite, and the margaritas, well, you just have to try them!

1/2 can frozen limeade ; 1/2 beer (not dark or stout!) ; 2-5 shots of tequila, to taste ; Lime wedges ; Salt to rim glasses ; Put limeade, beer, tequila in a blender. Add ice. Blend until slushy. Pour salt into a shallow dish. Using a lime wedge, run along rim of glass. Dip the rim in the salt, and voila! If you prefer margaritas on the rocks, skip the blender. Mix ingredients together and pour over ice.
