  1. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? You make blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, let alone the content!

    Nikki Lynn’s Reply: Thanks for the compliment. I have been blogging for a little over 3 years. Currently, I run 8 blogging websites and have wrote all my own content.

    • Holly, I would still use the lemon lime and reduce the amount of water or add blended strawberries and/ or strawberry flavored mix to equal that 3 cups. So, another words play with the water content in the recipe. Take it out completely and add in additional blended strawberries (use extremely ripe strawberries) or strawberry mix to equal the 3 cups of water you are removing. I would alos add in a couple of Tablespoons of sugar and dissolve the sugar into the strawberry mixture. Almost all strawberry margaritias need that bit of sweetness.
