Dear Dave,
It's time for us to take a few weeks off.  We are excited about a British Isles cruise that we booked with our travel agent almost a year ago.  We are definitely looking forward to some "tastes of summer" on this itinerary.

Gustavo was able to enjoy some "tastes of summer" on our PVR FAM in June at the Hacienda by Hilton.

To serve, cut a small wedge in one of the juice limes, and rub the lime all over the rim of the glass to moisten.  Dip the rim of the glasses in the lime sugar to give it a pretty, crystally rim.
Pour in the margaritas and serve immediately!
