Seriously refreshing for a summer dessert! Margarita Lime Cheesecake will have everyone asking you for the recipe! There isn't a summer function that I bring this too that everyone doesn't rave about this cheesecake. Not the traditional lemon flavoring but a touch of lime will bring you right to the tropics! Don't miss out on trying this one!
