i found this to be really sweet and pretty slushy. I think that perhaps I should have reduced the sugar and increased the lemon juice and water. (As backwards as that sounds, the higher the sugar to water ratio, the more slushy the mixture will be because sugar is what prevents the water from freezing hard.)
