Originally I said: "Fabulous! I made this for my appetizer pot-luck and *everyone* raved about it. Definately worth the fuss of the syrup. In addition, we used Sprite in stead of 7-up and it worked fine." Now as an added bonus - I froze the left over syrup and used it about a year later. Still good, perhaps even better.
This was incredibly good! I made it this weekend for my husband's graduation party and everyone loved it! I gave the recipe to a couple people. Even my husband, (who doesn't get too excited about much)said several times how much he liked it. I will definately keep this and make it many more times! It was very easy to make, I even changed how much I wanted to make and the computer made the right calculations and it was perfect! Thankyou so much for sharing this!!
A perfect punch for the holidays. Everyone loved it. My only complaint is that the amount given for number of servings is way off. It says 35 cups, so I made a half recipe since I was serving seven people. There was not enough. :-( Everyone got one short glass, and a couple people got a second. I'll definitely make this again, but I'll do the full recipe for sure. Oh, and because of another reviewer's comment, I used half the amount of lemon juice, and it was perfect for my taste.
