  6. Stir in lime, lemon, lemon juice and remaining water.
  7. chill at least 1 hour before serving.

At first glance the ingredients reminded me of the Christmas Scent without the bay leaf and oranges. This had a nice subtle aroma while boiling and it's so refreshing that I had this the whole day but used sugar substitute which I would add to my glass. Keeper! Thanks, 4-H Mom! Made for PAC.
