Makes one pitcher- 4 large drinks

 Place 2-4 glasses in freezer (depending how many want some of course) before making the drink

4 cups ice
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1 cup silver tequila
1 cup lime juice
½ -1 cup simple syrup (boil 1 cup of water and sugar until syrup-y and remove to cool)
lime wedges-rub around rim and optional decor
coarse salt

Place ice in blender and add tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and later add simple syrup.  Blend to desired consistency.  Take glasses from freezer, add more ice (if desired) and run a lime wedge around rim of glass, dip in salt and add mix to glass.  Place wedge on the side if you want and voila!
