Frozen Slush Margaritas

When citrus fruits are ripe and juicy, prepare a cooling cocktail guaranteed to be a winner with your friends. Choosing either traditional limes or alternatively lemons, prepare an icy slush over which generous slugs of tequila and Cointreau are drizzled. This is best made in the morning of the evening which you intend to serve, otherwise remove from the freezer for about 10 minutes to soften.
