Very nice!!! I used serrano chile slices because its what I had in the fridge. This is a deliciously different Margarita - not overly sweet. Just right. The honeydew taste came through, though very subtle. It might depend on the melon itself. But what I really LOVED was the sugar/salt/lime zest rim. The best marg rim I've ever had! I did use regular sugar, though, because my turbinado is too coarse. Thanks for sharing, ellie!
