Pink Lemonade Margaritas

Hello, summer.  It's been a while!

1 (12 ounce) can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 cans of cold water

1 750 ml bottle of tequila
1 cup of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
White sugar, for rimming glasses
1 lemon, cut into slices


Pour the thawed lemonade concentrate into a pitcher, and fill the can with cold water.  Pour into the pitcher; repeat twice more.   Fill the can with tequila and pour that into the pitcher, then repeat. Add about a cup of Grand Marnier.  Taste for strength and add more liquor if desired.

Stir well and add lemon slices to the pitcher. Taste and add sugar if you would like it a little sweeter.

Chill in the fridge for an hour before serving. Serve over ice in sugar-rimmed glasses. If you can find superfine sugar, that will coat easier. As for tequila, personally I prefer gold, as it's a bit sweeter and richer, but any tequila will work. My favorite brand, Casa Noble, is a bit pricey ; )
