Quite nice, actually. Especially while listening to vintage cuts by Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline or Chet Atkins. The "Nashville Sound" genre was often referred to locally in Nashville as "Countrypolitan". Frankly, though, I'd stick with the lemon in this.

I agree, I just listed lime in this recipe recipe as Wondrich hadn't indicated otherwise. Patsy Cline a must, though I also enjoy the more contemporary take on the Nashville Sound linked in the notes.

If you've never heard Hem - they were a big deal a few years back - it's lovely dreamy Countrypolitan.
