Orange Cream Margarita (makes 1 serving):
Take 1.5 oz. of your favorite tequila–I prefer Patron–throw in a half oz. of triple sec, and a few squeezes of lime, 2.5 oz. of orange juice and a scoop of pure vanilla ice cream. Combine all ingredients with 5-6 oz. of ice in a blender and slush it all up for a few seconds until the drink is of uniform consistency. Pour into a rocks glass and garnish the rim with a touch of salt or sugar and a lime wedge. Repeat as necessary.
