Tequila keeps this recipe from freezing solid, so the mixture maintains a slushy consistency. The slush is nice to have in the freezer when holiday guests stop by.
16 oz frozen whole strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1 can (12 oz) frozen limeade concentrate
1 cup water
3/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
4 cup lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
In blender place strawberries, sugar, limeade, water, tequila and triple sec. Blend until strawberries are chopped and mixture is blended. Pour into nonmetal freezer container (I like to use a plastic ice cream container). Cover container; freeze 8 hours or overnight until icy, stirring a few times after 2 hours.
To serve, stir mixture; spoon into 10 glasses. Top each serving with 1/4 cup carbonated beverage and stir till slushy.
I like to rim the glasses with sugar.
