Recipe by Jeffs Girl Way Out

This is a summer delight! I found this several years ago in a magazine. It's addictive, and it's a breeze to mix up. Go ahead! Pour yourself a glass of summer!

this recipe was used for several years at wedding at the Williston Wesleyan church in ND. It was a favorite then. Since it has been so long since I made it, does anyone have any hints to make sure it is successful. It seems too sweet but I doubt adding less sugar would be an issue. Any thoughts out there....Della
