Only took me a year - ~15 days. I still have an extra packet of flavoring left, too.
This year, I should:
use better tequila, but still dump in a whole bottle (as the recipe indicates)
use better tequila, and only put in half a bottle (as everyone said they were pretty strong last year)
use ginger ale instead and let people add their own tequila
learn my lesson and stop using bright green drink mixes and buckets for my alcohol-flavoring methodology
No, this isn't a big, meaningful post. Shut up.
