Once a year we go on a group camping trip and all combined there are about 30 of us. This year we are doing 2 group pot lucks where each family provides one themed food item, one themed drink and one theme decoration. Our themes are; a Mexican Fiesta and a Greek night.

2 cups lime juice, about 20 limes
2 cups white tequila
2 cups Triple Sec
2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple juice
Fresh pineapple slices, for garnish
