WOW! This was awesome! I'm a margarita lover and this was a great "twist" on that! I don't usually like things too sweet, and this was great. We used fresh lime juice and Patron. What a refreshing summer drink! Can't wait to make them again!
Very refreshing! I already had a Simple Syrup solution prepared, so I muddled the mint in the syrup, strained and proceeded with the recipe as written. I used Patron Tequila and Sprite for the lemon-lime and the taste was great! Thank you for sharing, kitchenslave03!
