    We are HUGE fans of ginger ale and lemonade at our house so this recipe was great for us. 1 cup of honey was a bit too much for us so we cut it back some but otherwise, we LOVED it!

    just wanted to point out if you use sprite instead of club soda, you will be adding significantly more sweetener than the cup of honey. sprite is full of sugar.

    The lemonade had a nice tang and fizz. I found the honey a bit overpowering but overall flavor was very good. It may also be good with lemon-lime soda instead of the club soda if it is too sour.

    I took this to a potluck lunch at work - everyone loved it.

    This was a really quick and easy refreshing drink. I will probably try to cut the honey down like other reviewers said because it was a tad too sweet. Other than that, it's a keeper!

    I made a batch of this to test it before serving it at a luncheon. Using the full amount of honey was a bit overpowering, but I plan to use it for the luncheon (just with half the honey). I really like the idea someone suggested of using Sprite instead of club soda and may try that as well.

    I multiplied the recipe by 8 and served it in a punch bowl with sliced lemons for a spring baby shower. You wouldn't believe the praise it received. Easy, tasty and refreshing. I was aiming for a "not-so-sweet" punch and it delivered. Use this recipe if you're sick of the sherbet style punches, then sit back and watch the compliments roll : )P.S. It's really easy too~

    I cut the honey down to 1/2 cup and used Sprite for fizz. Both my husband and I loved it, and he said it reminded him of home-made gingerale. This is definately a keeper!
