Nice combination of ingredients, but this was way too much lemon for our tastes, and we like tart foods. If I make again, I will not have the sliced lemon and probably reduce the lemon juice to 1/4-1/3 cup, and maybe add something sweet to tone down the sourness a bit. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
