Historiann is posting Thanksgiving recipes. I post my contribution early because it may come in handy in preparing the rest of the meal:
The Traditional Holiday Margarita:
1) Frozen Margarita mix (quality does not matter. Frozen limeade works in a pinch)
2) Tequila (the higher the shelf in the liquor store, the better. Trust me, you DO NOT want to skimp on the tequila. To paraphrase a friend, use of low quality tequila leaves you feeling so badly that you won't believe that a person could be in such pain and still be alive.)
3) Ice (from the refrigerator.)
4) Salt, if you like that sort of thing.
2) Glasses (or twisty straw)
Put mix in blender. Pour tequila in blender. The mix can says use 1/2 of the can's worth of tequila, depending on your relatives, you can use up to 2. I've been told that in-laws require at least a full can. Add ice. Blend. Pour into glass. Drink.
Some people like salt on the edge of their glass. You can do that if you like that. Some people insist on a lime wedge. Go there, too, if you must; but, really, that takes time and effort and the kids are screaming, and your mom and grandmother are fighting for the prime spot on the cross, and your brothers are starting up the annual ass-whooping, and your dad is running through his oeuvre of fart jokes. Time is of the essence here.
If you are running low too soon, you can use more tequila to stretch the recipe. You can also dispense with the glasses and just drink straight out of the blender; or you can replace the ice, mix, blender and glass with a twisty straw.
If that doesn't help, I know someone who has a great brownie recipe; but chocolate is really more of a Christmas treat. He also might know someone who knows someone who can get some ingredients that could start the new tradition of family rave.
