    A good reminder that we don't need to buy koolaid mixes, we can make fruit drinks from actual fruit. With some very sweet oranges, I used half the sugar. Overall, I found this too watery, like if the ice had melted and diluted the drink. I would use at least one more and maybe two of each fruit.

    This was delicious. Made a big pitcher and we (family of 3) finished it in a couple of hrs, then I was asked to make it again. It was great. I never thought of combining lemons and oranges but the result was so good. We really enjoyed it. I will definitely make it for my Romanian family next time I go.

    This was so refreshing and delicious! I knew I'd love this because I love oranges and lemons. You can't go wrong serving this on a hot spring or summer day. Made for ZWT4 and the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

    I was hankering for juice for a change in this hot weather and I'm so glad I found this! Lemon and orange? Great combination! I used sugar substitute for this btw. So refreshing! Totally awesome! Thanks Japan bound! (Made and reviewed for WZT4 EE)

    I love citrus, so when I saw this recipe, had to try it!!! I made this in the morning to have later with lunch. This is so refreshing and I love the combination of the lemons and oranges. I followed as directed, but cut the recipe in half. Next time I may even cut back on the amount of sugar or use a sugar substitute. Thanks Japan for a great recipe!!!
