This was made on 7/6/09 for the " Comfort Cafe' " event.the amount of sugar I used was about 2 teaspoons, which made it have the right amount of " sweetness " for me. It was so " light and refreshing " . I'm glad it only makes 1 serving, or I would be drinking it all day. :) When it gets too hot outside, this will be be made often. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
