Yum! I made my simple syrup with Splenda, and it turned out just fine. I also used an extra 3/4 cup of water rather than the ice, as I like my drinks over ice rather than frozen. This is a great recipe. I've never liked the premade bottled mix and this hit the spot. Thanks for sharing.

Quite tasty! I had to use more lime because my limes were on the small side. Hubby says, "woo hoo!" so this recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much!
