Drink of the Week: Sparkling Margarita Floats

Drink of the Week: Sparkling Margarita Floats

I’m game for any recipe that has the words “sparkling” and “margarita” in the title! Here’s how to make this toast-worthy concoction by Erika Lenkert:

Sparkling Margarita Floats
by Erika Lenkert (for Everyday with Rachael Ray)

Ingredients
One 12-oz can frozen limeade concentrate
1 1/2 cups tequila
1/2 cup triple sec
2 quarts tonic, chilled
1 pint tangerine, lemon or lime sherbet

Directions
1. Chill 8 glasses. In a pitcher, stir together the limeade, tequila and triple sec. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. Stir the tonic into the limeade mixture. Place 1 scoop of sherbet into each of the glasses, and stir in the margarita mix.

Hurry and make up some excuse to enjoy these with friends before the weather gets too cold! ;)

Hi Maree –
I actually have those coasters ;) – so I know they’re from Crate & Barrel, but it was quite a while ago that they carried them, so I don’t see them online anymore. You might try in-store though!

Sandra SAYS:

On step 2 at the bottom when it says stir in the margarita mix, is that the mix that you just made or is that a seperate ingredient?

Hi Sandra –
The recipe is referring to the mix you just made in step 1. I can see how that’s confusing the way it’s worded though :)
