LP8 - Virgin Margaritas by jade

Hey, this is a GrEaT! drink! I made it one day, when I was really bored, and wanted to use the blender. They are totally alcohol-FREE, but mom said they tasted as good as the real thing. BE CAREFUL with the salt, although it is VERY addicting, it makes the drink a little to powerful and...well, salty. So make sure you only coat a small layer on the top of the glass with lime so you don't pick up to much salt. It's a really good drink though! YUM!
1 lime wedge
coarse salt, for dipping glasses
1 cup ice cubes
1 cup cold water
1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
lime slices, to garnish (optional)

Makes 3 drinks
15 minutes(15 mins. prep)

1.Run the lime wedge around the rim of 3 glasses to moisten them.
2.Dip the rims into the salt to lightly coat the edges of the glasses.
3.Place the glasses in the freezer to chill (this can be done several hours ahead of time).
4.Place the ice, water, limeade, orange juice concentrate and lime juice in the container of a blender.
5.Process until combined and slushy.
6.Pour into the prepared glasses.
7.Garnish each glass with a lime slice, if desired.
8.Serve immediately.
