Pink Lemonade Margarita

We were on vacation at the beach in Rhode Island last week.  During a heat wave there's no place I'd rather be.  Our days consisted of a nice little rotation of beach, other beach, salt pond and playground, all while enjoying Jon being home from work for the first week since August.  After Colin went to sleep at night (thank you, blackout curtains), we'd relax on the porch and enjoy the view of the water.  Vacations call for special cocktails, at least around our house, and Jon took the lead and whipped up this batch of Pink Lemonade Margaritas. 

Pink Lemonade Margarita
inspired by Ina Garten 

Makes 4 cocktails.

1 cup pink lemonade
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cup triple sec
1 cup white tequila
2 cups ice
kosher salt

Run one of the juiced limes around the rims of the glasses and coat with kosher salt.  Set aside.
In a blender, combine lemonade, lime juice, triple sec and ice.  You might need to add the ice in batches, depending on how large your blender is.
Stir in tequila. 
Serve very cold, preferably with a view.
