      This was very nice and very refreshing. My kids LOVED it but I found it a bit too sweet and would probably add only one tablespoon of sugar next time. A much healthier alternative to cordial or long-life packaged fruit juice.

      Yummy! I used less water and sugar and more lime in mine. Very fresh tasting!

      A HUGE success! To tell the truth, I didn't expect such a wonderful fruity depth of flavor. It is astonishingly refreshing. Perhaps just a little sweet for my taste. Next time I will reduce the sugar a bit and increase the lime juice. It has my highest recommendation! The layering effect after chilling for several hours was interesting too.
