Start a new holiday tradition with this refreshing meal-ender that pairs a homemade pretzel and graham cracker crust with the flavors of lime, tequila and orange liquer. Get the recipe: http://www.hgtv.com/holidays-and-entertaining/key-lime-margarita-pie/index.html

Ingredients:

Crust:

1/2 cup pretzels, finely crushed
1/2 cup graham crackers, finely crushed
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

Filling:

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
2 Tbsp. tequila
1 Tbsp. orange liqueur
Few drops green food coloring, optional
1 cup heavy cream

Garnish: Lime slices

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

To make the pretzel crust, combine the crushed pretzels, graham crackers, sugar and melted butter. Once the mixture is combined, spread the mixture evenly into a 9-inch pie tin. Press the mixture in the tin onto the bottom and the sides to form a firm, even crust. Bake for 5 minutes until the edges are lightly browned. Let shell cool until needed.

For the filling, use a large mixing bowl, and combine the sweetened condensed milk, limeade, tequila, orange liqueur and food coloring, if desired, until all ingredients are well mixed. In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the lime and tequila mixture. Spoon the filling into the pie shell, cover and freeze for 4 hours or until firm.

To serve, let pie stand for 10 minutes after coming out of freezer. Slice pie and garnish with lime slices.
