We loved this delicious limeade treat Nancy. I made 1/2 a batch for the two of us. It was so quick and easy to make. It was wonderful, it tasted sweet tart and tangy. Just the way we like it. Made as written wouldn't change a thing. Served with Mountain Dew... what a treat this was. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Beverage Anyone? Tag Game 2015.
