Pie # 34: Margarita Pie

I made this on a whim in celebration of Cinco de Mayo tomorrow! I plan on having a fantastic day filled with bridal showers and cousins, ending with some tacos and margaritas with great friends. This pie is definitely making an appearance. I combined two recipes from Allrecipes and Look for an update after I taste-test!
