This was a pretty good "soup" hehe. I cut down on the sugar quite a bit, as 3/4 cup just seemed like way too much to me (especially since lemonade is sweetened). I used much less than that (i cant remember how much, sorry!) and still found it to be a little too sweet for my tastes. I think next time, just for change, I might try to add some other kind of juice to it, for a different flavor!. I had to add some of the extra lemonade as it was a bit thicker than I believed it should be. Garnishing with mint was really nice :-) I really loved the way this "soup" looks in pretty glass dishes. THanks for the recipe and the idea. I will try this with other fruits :-) Thanks again!!
