Line each glass with salt if desired. I put out two plates, one filled shallowly with water, the other with salt. I dunked each glass in the water, then quickly into the salt. Set aside till needed.
For the Simple Syrup:
In a medium saucepan mix 1 ¼ lb. sugar with 16 oz. of water, cook while stirring occasionally over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate. This will last for 24 hours.
For the Margarita Mix:
Cut limes, oranges and lemons in half. Squeeze juice from 3 limes, 3 oranges, and 3 lemons into a quart container and add 1/2 of your simple syrup to it. Pop this in the fridge. This will last for 24 hours.
For the Fruit Ices:
Blend each fruit separately with ice (I used about 1 1/2 cups of ice per fruit, but you can adjust this to your own taste) and 2 ounces of cooled simple syrup until thick. Store each fruit flavour separately in bowls. These three mixes will last for 2-3 hours in fridge. If making quickly you can pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes maximum.
Putting it all together:
Blend the Margarita mix, tequila, and some ice in a good blender until thick.
Now scoop about two teaspoons of each ice in the bottom of your chilled Martini glass. I like extra strawberry in mine so I use that as the base then use all three fruits randomly on top.
Now top the fruit ices with the thick margarita mix.
You can now add a shot of Cactus Juice into the drink. If you can't find it or want to keep this light substitute sprite.
Place lime,orange and lemon wedges on the rim for garnish.
