At the end of a long day people need to relax and everyone has their own special way to do so. If you are over twenty-one you can go out and have a nice drink to relax before bed, but then you have to go out and then drive home. So instead of driving somewhere you can make a simple, homemade margarita in your own home. The ingredients are things you can just keep on hand in your refrigerator and can easily pick up on your way home from work. The following is a great recipe for margaritas.

Put the lid on the blender and press the puree button, or whichever setting you prefer. Keep mixing it until it is to your desired consistency, usually about three or four minutes. While it is mixing you can cut your limes in half, down the middle, not end to end. Then cut one half into wedges, and the other half into slices with a slit from the middle to the outside.
Finally, you can salt the edges of the glasses by filling a bowl with the margarita salt and dipping the rim of a glass into the salt. Before you dip wet the rim of the glass with water to make the salt stick better. WARNING- DO NOT use regular table salt, it does not taste good. Once you have the rim salted and the mixture blended, you can...
