    JanuaryBride's Note:

    A Jamaican recipe made by Sunny Anderson on Cooking for Real. Some reviewers on another website recommend adding a twist of lime at the end and decreasing the amount of sugar from 2 cups down to 1 cup (but I will leave those choices up to you). Sunny also said that she has added vodka to this beautiful, bright green juice for a wonderful adult cocktail.

      Another winner from the fabulous January Bride. I always enjoy your drinks and this unique one certainly does not disappoint. Beautiful bold color, refreshing, tart and tangy drink. I loved it. Made exactly as written, only change was to use club soda instead of water, (personal preference only). Thanks for sharing JB, I will be making this again. Made for Aussie Swap #39. :)

      Followed the recipe exactly, but left out the peels and vodka, as I can't eat them. This was a nice and refreshing juice, but I actually prefered it after the ice had melted a bit and thinned it out. Next time I will mix with soda water to thin it out. Thanks so much for sharing! Made for ZWT5 Groovy GastroGnomes.
