For DAYS before I tried this out, I salivated! Very tasty cocktail! Tad too sweet for my taste, but that can be rectified! Great concept to use limeande conc.! Will keep some in the freezer! Tried this out last "Margharita Monday," when a friend joined me for a happy hour afternoon. Thanks much for posting this recipe!

I love amaretto and am always looking for good recipes! Thanks for this one. I made it on the rocks because my daughter was sleeping and I didn't want to wake her with the blender. I sugared the glass, then measured the ingredients in equal parts then added handfulls of crushed ice from my fridge to the sugarline and stirred it a bit then topped it off with a little more amaretto and a splash of cointreau! Yum.

Whew Lawdy!! This is wonderful. Had this at Olive Garden last night and couldn't wait to find a recipe that is a close match. This is it. It is a bit more on the lime flavor than OGarden but it's close enough that I'll not need to order this again at the restaurant. My husband and I are both thrilled with this recipe. Can't wait to make this for my family next week during Thanksgiving eve appetizer dinner.

Absolutely wonderful! I had several friends over for my monthly dinner and drink party. These exact margaritas are served at Olive Garden. The only thing I did different was put the amaretto in a shot glass on the side for everyone to put in their drink like Olive Garden and sliced an orange for the side of the glass. Thanks it went very well with Spinach Tomato Tortellini from this site.

I make one similiar to this but on the Rocks. I use the large can of frozen limeade - then use half a 'can' of water; half a 'can' of tequila; and then almost 1/2 'can' of triple sec. Pour over the 'rocks' then add a shot of the Ameretto. It's awesome. I usually use salt - but will have to try the sugar. Thanks. I want one now but am at work - dang it - LOL
