2 tablespoons kosher salt
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
1 lime, juiced
1 can (6 ounce size) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup orange juice
4 cups ice cubes
Put the salt in a shallow saucer (must be large enough to dip the inverted serving glass in). In another shallow saucer, add the lime juice. Invert the glass and dip the rim into the lime juice to moisten. Then, dip the rim into the salt to evenly coat it.
Combine the frozen limeade, orange juice, and ice in a blender on high speed until well blended and the ice cubes are evenly crushed.
Pour the margaritas into the rimmed glasses. Garnish with the lime wedges. Serve immediately.
You can also used colored salt for the rim. They also make margarita salt that comes in containers perfectly sized for dipping the glasses in.

Tastes like a real margarita just without the boozy kick. The kids loved them (hopefully they won't be drinking real margaritas anytime soon!)

We have "happy hour" at work every Friday afternoon during break. Of course, we can't drink real alcohol while working so we try different non-alcholic drinks and serve them in shot glasses, martini glasses, etc. We tried this one a few weeks ago and gave up on trying anything else. From now on this is our Friday afternoon drink! We all loved it.

Made these for a birthday party for a friend in recovery. I have never had a frozen Margarita, so I can't compare, but this was delicious.

We served this to a large group; they enjoyed it. We are thinking next time we will add a drop or two of green food coloring to make it look more festive.

Served this over father's day weekend. We had both drinkers and non drinkers and even the drinkers thought these margaritas were awesome

SO good! We use this as a base for real margaritas, just put the alcohol in in place of the orange juice.

It worked well, however my personal preference was to cut the limeade to 3oz per batch and add 3oz of orange juice to keep the slush. This makes it a bit less sour.
Furthermore, I found this recipe to be off in servings. If using Libby Glass Margarita Glasses filled to a normal amount, the batch serves two plus a little extra, not four.
