Wonderful!! I tried an "Italian Margarita" at a bar last year, and thought of that when I spotted this recipe. I followed it exactly, and made a small pitcher that served four of us sizable drinks during our monthly Ladies Card Night. The fresh lime juice really is a Must in this recipe -- I wouldn't use bottled -- but they aren't too tart OR too sweet. Perfect for a hot day.
