Reviews forRaspberry Refresher
"The first time I made this I thought it had too strong of a vinegar taste also. The next time I made it I did less than half of the vinegar. We liked it this way much better but it still has a hint of the vinegar taste in it. Not sure what the vinegar is to do in here either but I think I will try and cut it back a bit more."
"I have a question about this one. Is the cider vinegar necessary? I made this drink and it has a very strong vinegar taste. I might try it again without any vinegar, replacing it with water. Any thoughts, anyone?"
