This is a drink that my girlfriends and I came up with one summer for a pool party. A pretty, refreshing drink, that I hope you will enjoy. I should tell you that it does pack quite a punch. We have also made this using pineapple juice or orange juice or lemonade instead of the limeade. All four juices taste great... My favorite version is with the limeade.
