Margarita Bars

It’s 4th of July week. You know what that means? That means people will be firing up the barbecue and having parties. How about I blow your socks off with a boozy dessert? Even better, this dessert tastes like a margarita – a heaven sent, margarita.

It’s magically delicious. Get on it.

Pulverize a stack of graham crackers until they are a fine crumb and melt some butter.

Mix the two together and press into a 9×13 inch glass Pyrex (or equivalent freezer-safe pan).

Mix some soft vanilla frozen yogurt with some frozen limeade and cool whip together until smooth. Then add a heavy splash of tequila.

Mix it in good.

Poor the boozy goodness evenly over graham crust. Cover and freeze for a few hours until firm. Serve with fresh whip and a lime wedge. Yum.
