  1. This was a pretty good "soup" hehe. I cut down on the sugar quite a bit, as 3/4 cup just seemed like way too much to me (especially since lemonade is sweetened). I used much less than that (i cant remember how much, sorry!) and still found it to be a little too sweet for my tastes. I think next time, just for change, I might try to add some other kind of juice to it, for a different flavor!. I had to add some of the extra lemonade as it was a bit thicker than I believed it should be. Garnishing with mint was really nice :-) I really loved the way this "soup" looks in pretty glass dishes. THanks for the recipe and the idea. I will try this with other fruits :-) Thanks again!!


I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
