MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 15, 2013

"Very refreshing! I used almost 1 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice, regular sugar & sprite in place of carbonated water. I will no longer buy frozen concentrates or drink mixes for my lime &/or lemonades."

"I liked it however I used regular sugar not the substitue. It was too sweet for me. I would cut the regular sugar to 1/2 cup next time."

"My daughter loves Cherry Limeade so I made this for her birthday and it is amazing. I have made several times since. Instead of the carbonated water, I used Key Lime Sparkling Water from Walmart and also used diet Sprite."
