    Have enjoyed this for years without knowing it had a name, tonight was no exception as we drank them down without getting a photo. Thanks for the post.

    It's true that the lime can change it a lot. It's great that way. Thanks Charlotte for this yummy drink. Made for ZWT9

    I love this classic. The lime is what makes it in my opinion. Made for Mike and the Appliance Killers ZWT9.

    I haven't had one of these in ages but everything was at hand so it was a go. I enjoyed mine with Recipe #373364 and Recipe #504850. Thanks Char, it was just the thing. :D
