This is the most refreshing drink I have had on a hot summer day! When you add the ingredients in the correct amounts (I had to make it several times and try more of this and less of that) it is superb! An absolutel MUST when you are having company in the summer.
I made this for my class project, and everyone loved it. Thx v. much!!!
I served this on Christmas Eve to a gathering of 20 family members... We ALL loved it!!!!
