    I agree about using Sprite instead of club soda. But that also made the drink much more sweet. So I tried to use less grenadine. I also doubled the amount of tequila. with all the juice and soda, the taste of the tequila was lost. good easy drink though.

    We found the beverage "flat" with the Club Soda. We switched and used Sprite instead. Thanks for recipe.
