Made recipe as posted. Perfect amount of sugar, and had great Lemon flavor :).. Made for PRMR tag.
This was good! I did add the sugar because I do not like tart things and with the lemon juice and lemon sorbet, the 3 Tbs sugar was a perfect amount. Will be a good summer drink. Made for 1-2-3-Hits March 2010.
Absolutely wonderful. I made it exactly as written, except I did not add the sugar. I have been recovering from the flu, and this was the perfect antidote! Hydrating and healthful! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
