      I made a half batch of the classic and it was too watery and not sweet enough for my taste. I had planned on making it into the tropical version anyway so added half of each of those ingredients as well (but only had 5.5 oz apricot nectar, not 6oz). Still not sweet enough so added another 1/4 cup sugar and quite enjoyed it at that point. Thanks for sharing!

      This is a good lemonade recipe but a little too tart for me. I had to add 2 more T of sugar to make it the right amount of sweetness. Made for PAC Spring 2008
