The lime in this drink reminds me a little of margaritas or "maggies". Like maggies, this drink is great with a salted rim or just a dash of salt. To salt a glass' rim, pour 1/4" water into a saucer or plate big enough to dunk the rim. Pour a 1/8" layer of salt onto a second plate. Dip the glass' rim into the water, then immediately dip in salt, turning the glass a little if it needs to pick up more salt. Pour drink into glass and serve.
