This juice is a favorite at our place. I'll often double the batch and send a jar next door to my mother-in-law! I was looking for a way to sweeten lemonade without using more sugar when I came up with the recipe. —Wendy Masters, Grand Valley, Ontario

"Made a batch this weekend and it was very good. Tangy and sweet. I pulled out my mother's old juice-o-matic and had a great time squeezing out all the yummy juice from the lemons and oranges. Will make another batch to keep in the fridge to make a glass at time."

"While this recipe makes an excellent drink for those without Diabetes it should not be consumed by those who are diabetic or even pre-diabetic. For those whodiabetic make this one as I do for my wife who is diabetic. Get the packets or pouches made by Crystal Light and make the drink per packet instructions. Ad a NO Sugar Added Orange Juice without pulp and then just sweeten to taste with any of the diabetic friendly sweetners. We prefer Spenda, Truvia or Stevia. You can also purchase both the Lemonade mix and an orange mix by Crystal Light that have no sugar content and mix them together and then add just water and get a delicious drink. No need to add any sweetner to this combination. Makes for variety."

"KarenMessenger -- the recipe is for a syrup. You mix the syrup with water to make the lemonade as it says at the end of the direction, you mix equal parts syrup (from the recipe) and water to make the lemonade. It sounds delightful, I may have to try it! :D"
