Tie One On Tuesday
1/2 c. butter
1 1/4 c. crushed pretzels
1/4 c. sugar
Melt butter. Add crushed pretzels and sugar. Press into 9 inch pie pan. Chill.
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. lime juice
1 tbsp. Tequila
1 tbsp. Triple Sec
1 c. whipping cream
Wedges of lime
Combine sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, Tequila, Triple Sec.
Whip cream and fold into mixture. Pour into chilled pie crust.
Freeze or chill for 3-4 hours until firm. Garnish each piece with a lime wedge.
Easy Peasy! At first I was a little put off by the crust but that gives it the salt around the edge taste to the pie. It also called for green food coloring but,ummmm,,,no.
So, to celebrate my wonderful pie, I decided to make up a batch of raspberry margaritas with the last of my raspberries from the garden.
1 cup raspberries
1 cup brandy-based orange liqueur
3/4 cup gold tequila
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
Mix up in a big pitcher and serve!
No matter how you end up serving your margarita, it will be a huge hit and you will win the love and admiration of friends and strangers alike, they might even build a monument.
