      Thanks so much Sharon for sharing another winner. This spiced and herbed citus ade is absolutely lovely, with a subtle blending of flavours. Just what I needed to help chase away my flu. I didn't have any whole allspice, so I used a tsp of ground allspice and strained it after heating. It worked well. I will definitely be making this again often.

      Yum - what a fantastic, refreshing drink! Love the allspice and rosemary flavours throughout this. And I totally recommend it if you have the sniffles or a cold. I added my sugar while the water was still warm so it would dissolve quicker. Next time I will double the amount and before adding the second amount of water I will freeze the concentrated juice in blocks so I can have the juice on hand ready to mix with water for a quick, healthy drink. Thanks Sharon for another winner!
