  1. I wondered,if we add a shot or so of either Grenadine or a Maraschino Cherry and a tsp. of cherry juice to it,, Could it be called a “Lime Blush”? I’ve never tried it personally,I am not a practised enjoyer but I would love to hear from you as to whether it is a pass or fail, just for my own gratification. I wouldn’t know what tastes good or not so I am depending on you,my friends,to tell me the truth. I value your opinions,so, in advance,I say,Thank you my dearest friends. Hope to heat from you soon! Blessings to you all!

  2. Bad recipe. The “juice of 1 lime” is totally arbitrary and changes with the seasons.

    @Maureen – Are you seriously asking other people what will taste good to you? If you don’t know what tastes good to you, I don’t think anyone can help you.
