  • If you’re using bottled lime juice, make sure to shake it before using for optimal flavor.
  • To achieve the perfect balance between tart and sweet, adjust the ratio of the ingredients as desired.
  • If you’re looking for a variation on the classic Dr McGillicuddy Cherry, try adding in some other flavors. A splash of cranberry juice would be a delicious addition!
