    You can also add a dash of orange juice and/or Cointreau to a standard margaritas to give it a little extra flavor. Even a splash of grenadine provides some extra color – but use just a little.

    Love the Honeydew Rita…however there is no link to the recipe. What’s up with that?

    Hi Dawn –
    Just fixed the link for the Honeydew Rita – looks like there was some extra spaces in the html before. It should work now!
