      I made this tonight to go with my dinner along with Strawberry Lemonade recipe number #61690. Both went well with my dinner tonight. A very easy recipe. Thanks for posting.

      I brought some to DH for refreshment while cutting the grass. I had a few seconds to look around at his grass cutting handiwork and noticed how short cropped the grass was. My initial reaction was, "Wow, you mow so close the worms are scared!" Anyway, this hit his spot.
