Reviews for Fresh Lime Margaritas
"Loved these, they taste so fresh and simple to make~thank u!!"
"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."
"Yummy. Used agave instead of sf sugar. Added orange juice as well."
