YUM! This was even better than I thought it would be! Tart but just sweet enough to be perfect! The flavors here hit your mouth in different spots and make your taste buds take notice. I would make this again in a heart beat! Lemony and delicious! I used my recipe#315848 to rim the glass. MMMMMMM! Thank you for a GREAT recipe!
