    Yup, I think I could enjoy a few of these. Preferably while laying out on a beach.

      Thanks! It depends on your preference. I used about a tablespoon of lime juice, it adds a nice depth of flavor and balances out the alcohol. Although, some people like just a squeeze of lime. I say try out a little lime and work your way up until you like how it tastes :)
