    **Mandy**'s Note:

    I love this drink so couldn't believe it when I saw it wasn't on Zaar. This is from the back of a packet of Pearl Barley. You can also experiment with a mixture of other citrus juices such as lime or grapefruit.

      We love barley water, but this is the first time I've made it at home, and it turned out really well. I reduce the recipe to make one litre bottle. Very tasty! Thanks Mandy!

      I already had my eye on this one when I saw the great reviews and pics from other folks...also I saw Alton Brown make plain Barley water on his show. This was very good. I have been in the habit of making lemonade from scratch lately so this was really one other simple added step. Unique, I like that. I am going to try this out on some friends without telling them what it is. I will also try a sweetener like honey or maple syrup, maybe stevia (for MIL) in the future. Thanks Mandy! Made for ZWT4.

      I halved the recipe and enjoyed the lemony taste, and so healthy too! Thanks Mandy!
