Well we have margarita drinks, pies, and cupcakes.....why not an ice cream...yummy stuff!

1/2 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons triple sec
2 tablespoons tequila
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 cups heavy cream

Pour the lime juice, triple sec, and tequila into a bowl and stir in the sugar to dissolve. Add the cream and then softly whip until thick and smooth but not stiff. Spoon into an airtight container, freeze overnight. Does not need softening before serving as it will not freeze to hard and melts speedily and voluptuously.
Serve in glasses dipped in salt and sugar. Serves 6

The original Margarita was invented in 1948 by socialite Margarita Sames. According to the legend it was during a party at her cliffside hacienda in Acapulco that Margarita began experimenting with “the drink”. Looking for something to cut the dust of a hot afternoon, she mixed Tequila Herradura, Cointreau and fresh lime juice. Her cocktail kept the party going for two weeks and today the Margarita is the #1 most popular cocktail in the U.S.
