Really good.  As others have said, wonderful balance between sweet and tart/sour.  Hell, it tastes like a maraschino/grapefruit sweet-tart!


A great drink, as commented upon by others. I made one change that worked out well, however: lacking blackberry liqueur, I substittued Creme de Framboises (a top-notch rasberry liqueur), with a nice outcome. I'm sure the taste of the drink would have been somewhat different, but I was satisfied with the substitution. I used only 1 tsp, but in the future I will use at least 11/2 oz of the rasberry liqueur, because it gets overwhelmed by the lime juice.

This is a wonderful summer afternoon drink that I rated 4.5 (something I don't do often).
