"For my Cuisinart freezer, I doubled the recipe but should NOT have doubled the sugar. I'd cut back by at least 25%. Otherwise, perfectly refreshing. Right out the Cuisanart, add Lemoncello for an excellent adult slushie!"

"This was really good, tart yet sweet, I added lime juice with lemon and added less sugar I will be making this again the hubby loved it."
