My husband and I have always wanted to try a Scorpion. We went out, got all the ingredients and invited a few friends over to join the party. Everybody thought this drink was killer. Has a bite to it so be very careful. The oranges we used had a real sweet flavor that went well with the tart from the lime juice. A bold drink. Thanks Nurse Di.
