  • “Everyone who enjoys lemonade should try this one.A different recipe for an old time favourite drink for the summertime. Enjoy!!!”

  • “Calling ALL lemonade lovers–This is the drink for you!! This really added a summer feel to my dinner. I served this in a glass pitcher with the lemon slices and ice cubes floating on top and it looked picture perfect! I loved the flavour of this and it reminds me of Applebees’ lemonade. I plan to make this often over the summer.Thanks for sharing this, I would have kept this secret to myself!( oh and a funny story that I have to share–my grocery store was out of large bottles of club soda and so I bought a 12 pack of cans and stuck them in the fridge. Our exchange student who is always eager to try the many new things that are not available in China, like the wide variety of cereal and in particular all kinds of soft drinks. When he saw the new cans in the fridge he thought I had brought him some new pop to try!! After chugging a large amount and gagging on the taste he told me later that this was the worst pop he had every tasted! Later, as he drank it in this recipe he said it wasn’t so bad–funny, eh?)”

  • “Easy, awesome refreshing taste and I left the mint in the bottles in the fridge and it infused beautifully overnight! mmm mmm mmmm!”

  • “I had to add 2 TB extra sugar for me to really like this.Made this for company and everyone enjoyed it and was impressed I made it from scratch.Thanks!”

  • “Sooo delicious! This was gone is minutes, next time I’ll make much more. I used only one cup of lemon juice (who knew it took so many lemons to make that amount!) and didn’t measure the soda water, I just added lemon lime seltzer until it tasted right. I also made a sugar syrup by boiling the water and sugar together. Made for Memorial Day Challenge ’08.”

  • “Yum! Sweet-tart. I love the fizz of the soda water. I used lemon-lime flavor. I used regular sugar b/c I don’t know what fruit/berry sugar is!”

  • “Delicious on a hot summer afternoon! I didn’t have berry sugar so used berry flavored bubbly water. I loved it! Thank you!”
