      This is sooo good! I used all Splenda, and actually put about 3/4 cup and added mashed strawberries when serving. But, before serving, he he he, wink wink, I topped it off with some Grand Marnier. WOW! Just awesome! Thanks so much for posting! Made for a forum event at KK. (hiccup)

      I was going to make blackberry lemonade, but discovered that my son's been eating all the blackberries! This is a fine basic lemonade recipe. I like a slice of frozen lemon as a garnish. Thanks for posting!

      This hits the nail in the southern cooking's coffin. I used the strawberry version. Delicious!
