The salty crust will remind you of the traditional salted rim of a margarita glass. A creamy lime-and-tequila filling completes this refreshing, tangy-sweet frozen pie.


  • For the Crust:
  • 1 cup finely crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter, melted
  • For the Filling:
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1-2 tablespoons tequila
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
  • Several drops green food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • Lime slices (optional)



Stir together crushed pretzels and sugar. Stir in melted margarine or butter. Spread mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie plate. Press onto bottom and sides to form a firm, even crust. Preheated oven to 375 degrees F and bake for 5 minutes or until edge is lightly browned. Cool on a rack.


In a large mixing bowl combine sweetened condensed milk, limeade concentrate, tequila, orange liqueur and, if desired, food coloring. In a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream till soft peaks form; fold into tequila mixture. Spoon filling into crust. Cover and freeze about 4 hours, or till firm. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with lime slices.
