Reviews for Sunny Orange Lemonade
"My boys really enjoyed this lemonade. They don't like the tang of regular lemonade so the orange helps mellow that out. The sweetness level was prefect for us but I can see where it might be too sweet for others."
"Love the orange-lemon combination but way too sweet for me. Will try it again with half the amount of recommended sugar."
"This was very refreshing."
"The orange really rounds out the flavor - loved it!"
"Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks so I was anxious to try this and my family and I loved it! I did use Splenda instead of the sugar. Will make again!"
"Kathleen1935. You need to read the instructions again. Readers are asked "what they do to modify the recipe".I've gotten some good ideas from this.The recipe, of course should only be rated on the original as is recipe."
"PERFECT SUMMER DRINK"
"Delicious! I like reading other peoples variations too."
"I like to hear about the recipe presented and the variations some people add to it."
"So then rate the recipe as it stands and then add what you did, it's creative to see what everyone comes up with."
"I always read the reviews for ideas on other ingredients to add."
"I agree with if you add something it is not the recipe you are rating and that is what they are asking you to do"
"I like to see the variations."
"Why do people have to say what they did to alter the recipe. Can't they read instructions??? RATE THIS RECIPE NOT YOURS."

"I added a couple tea bags to the boiling water - was a big hit at my house - a favorite on hot days!"
