I lived in Arizona for years and loved getting these on a hot summer evening. Now living in the midwest I used this recipe and it is amazing! Other west coast transplants have tried and agreed it is dead on! Great job on this one!
This is THE best margarita recipe because you don't need a blender. You can make them ahead for a party, or just keep them in your freezer to just have one at a time. LOVE them!
In the summer I always have my ice creram maker bowl chilled so that works great for this, also if you pour it in a shallow baking pan like an 8 inch square or a 13x9 if you can fit it...it will freeze faster than in a pitcher because of the surface area. I make granitas this way and every hour or so for maybe 5 hours just scrape it up and make crystals, then scoop up the crystals into a glass like a yummy slush!
I worked for Z'Tejas for a number of years as a bartender having to make those drunk driving disaters waiting to happen. Your recipe is close but we never used Montezuma and the triple sec was a 60 proof and the brand was Le Roux.

AMAZING, I make these for my husband and I and we love them. The only drawback is waiting for them to freeze, it takes the whole day.
Take a Nap Margarita.....This 'Slammin Maggie' packs a great punch!
