Very good and very festive. I used it at a recent Cinco de Mayo, and it was well loved. I used frozen limeade mix, since I couldn't find the margarita mix. It seemed to work just fine!
The flavor of this dip seemed off. Perhaps it was just the type of frozen margarita mix that I purchased? I had hoped it would be a fun and tasty addition to our party, but it really didn't work out for us.
Make sure you serve this pretty festive dip as a dip. I was tempted to put a straw in and drink this creamy rich refreshing dip! Thanks Audrey!
