My teenagers say we should always have some of this in the freezer! No need to make a large quantity up at a time either--we just scooped a couple of scoops into a glass and mixed with Fresca for a great on-demand refresher. It never freezes totally solid, so it is easy to scoop out an appropriate amount. Don't wait for a special occasion! (It is plenty sweet, so you might be able to cut back on the sugar a bit. I will try that next time).
