Top Review by Sydney Mike

Making similar lemonades, I find myself perfectly satisfied with heating & stirring the water & sugar just enough to dissolve the sugar, without actually boiling it! And besides, this time around I was in a hurry & really wanted to taste the final product! Definitely a winner in my book, this great tasting lemonade will be made again & again! We especially enjoyed the inclusion of the sparkling water! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
