      Nice and super easy recipe! Was a nice change up from the bottle mix. Too bad lime prices have sky rocketed from .25 to .70 for a small lime. Either way, fresh is best! I used Lunazul Blanco (Silver) tequila which is ~$20 and is pretty good and smooth for the money. Overall it's a great recipe and will be adding this to the bar rotation. I might try a float of Grand Marnier on the next batch I make. Thanks for sharing!

      Alligirl this is a winner. Thank you so much for sharing my new favorite cocktail. I made the fruity version, can't wait to try all the rest. Love tequila all types but the silver is my favorite. The ratio of berries, agave syrup and lime juice is perfect. I used an organic raw blue agave syrup, it worked beautifully in this drink.
