Way too bitter for me. Luckily, I read the reviews of the drink on Ina Garten's Food Network page, and I understood it would be tart. I used just 1 lime. No amount of doctoring helped this for me. Too bad, it's such a cool name for a drink. If you like tart, this is for you! Update to review on July 13, 2009...I didn't want to let this go to waste, and I figured someone would drink it. After being in the refrigerator several hours, it mellowed and was actually quite good. Sorry for the negative review. Sometimes you just need to give things some time.

After a Walt Disney World trip in Dec 2006 where I had to rent an electric scooter because I couldn't manage the walking, I decided to have gastric bypass surgery, which was done Feb 28, 2007. I lost 160 lbs (though I've gained back about 60 of that since). I can't eat as much as I used to, so I want every bite to be extra good!
