Very good. We like our lemonade a little less sweet so cut sugar to 2/3 cup and it was fine. I made the basic recipe and the strawberry version. Both quite good. Garnished them with lemon balm leaves. Made for Variety is the Spice of Life 2013 game.

This was very nice. I made the strawberry version with well blended fresh berries in place of the syrup and used Splenda for the sugar. I would make it again. Made for Variety is the Spice of Life game, 2013.

I used grape juice from our vines instead of blueberries for the ginger ale version. <br/>Made with Splenda instead of regular sugar. Very refreshing! made for Variety is the Spice of Life, May 2013

Funny thing about this is I had planned on making strawberry version as I had strawberries, but realized it called for strawberry syrup. But then I realized I had the ingredients for the Virgin Watermelon Mojito Lemonade version. So I progressed in making it. I did omit the mint not because I didn't have it but because I just plain forgot. To make a long story short, I thoroughly enjoyed this version. Instead of pouring it over ice I blended the ice into the drink for a frappe version. I also have to say I cheated and used lime juice out of a squeeze bottle.<br/>Made for the Variety is the Spice of Life 2013 Event.

I loved the lemon sunset and the Herbal Iced Tea versions. For the herbal I tea I prepared some tea with lemon balm from the garden in little water, cooled down with ice cubes and added the lemonade basic recipe. Thanks a lot for posting this great recipe!

I made the original and the watermelon mojito. Both were great!! I did add a little extra sugar to the original, but the mojito version didn't need anything added. I really loved this as a non-alcoholic alternative, but will most likely add some rum next time around. Made for Variety is the Spice of Life event 2013.

This was excellent! I love the variations, and made three of them for Variety is the Spice of Life 2013. Being a Mojito fanatic, I just had to try that one... and made the original plus the blueberry/ginger ale variation. My favorite was, of course, the Watermelon Mojito. After taking pics, I offered DH his pick and darned if he didn't take my fave. LOL! Later on I'm going to fix another one, but this time will add a shot of white rum. Oh boy!!! Thanks for posting, Alaina!

This is a terrific recipe AlainaF. We really enjoyed this homemade lemonade, it was so quick and easy to make. Very versatile, I was able to get the strenght that we enjoy very easily. I made three versions of this lemonade, the basic lemonade, the blueberry lemonade which was awesome and I made a Strawberry lemonade for my dh, I used fresh strawberries which I pureed in place of the syrup, so good. Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy often this summer. Made for 2013 Variety Is The Spice Of Life Event!

This recipe is great for summer entertaining. You can make the basic lemonade, then just have the variations on hand so everyone gets something different. I made the blueberry gingerale and it was delicious. Made for the 2013 Variety Event.

Lovely twist on the usual lemonade! I opted for the Tropical Breeze version, adjusted a bit for a whole pitcher instead of just a glass. The lemonade portion was just about 2L, so I added 1L each of pineapple and passion fruit juices, because I don't think my pitcher was big enough for a 1-1 ratio of all the juices. I liked how the lemonade flavor still stood out with the juices, so I will continue to use the 2-1 ratio anytime I make this. Thanks for posting! Made for the Variety is the Spice of Life 2013 event
