"OMG this is sooo good!! You gotta try it -- with real sugar! You might want to make a double or triple batch because this recipe only makes 2 cups -- not nearly enough to last a day, and my kids and I drink a lot of lemonade during the summer!"

"This is a very good tasting lemonade. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is extremely sweet. I love sweets, but the amount of sugar in this recipe is too much. As it is, might work well if using limes (limeade). For lemons I would cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, everything else is fine. Make double and triple batches, I gulped this recipe in only a few minutes; so refreshing!"

"My husband and I use 5 cups of water 1 cup of fresh lemon juice and either 1 cup of sugar or splenda. We bring the splenda down to 3/4 cup. My husband likes it tarter.
