"I made the Frozen Lime Margarita and it was excellent! Instead of superfine sugar I used Domino Light Sugar and Stevia Blend. This is so much better than buying a Margarita mix. So worth it."

"Excellent and refreshing. I did the frozen strawberry version. I did not use the frozen lime-aid since I forgot to buy it and it was great. Love it!"
