"So refreshing! You wouldn't think milk could taste good in lemonade, but it sure does. A little bit of work but totally worth it. I halve the lemons then squeeze, then cut up and process (easier than quartering first). Delicious!"

"Wonderful....I love the creaminess the milk gives it, and the little bit of bite from the club soda. I did notice that it did curdle a tiny bit after being stored in the refrigerator for awhile, but it was still delicious. Probably best to drink it all just after making it."
