    These look amazing, Spree! I can’t resist making them tonight! I may have to use rum instead of tequila though! 🙂

    April 13, 2012
    • Did you try Val? with rum? How were they? 🙂

      April 16, 2012

        They were really good, Spree. I used a spiced rum and left out the Grand Marnier and salt. Next time I will dip the rims in sugar and drink without straws, in the hope that they will last longer! 🙂
