very refreshing! the honey is a great touch. i changed the recipe a little though... to avoid the sugar grittyness i made a simple syrup with sugar and water, added the honey to that, and steeped in some mint leaves. the result was smooth, fresh, and delicious... yum!!! Read More

I made this exactly as written and found the amounts of lime juice and water to be perfect. However I really didn't notice the honey at all and given the title "HONEY Limeade " I found that disappointing. Next time I'll add more honey and reduce the amount of sugar. I want to taste that honey in there! As written this is a good but average limeade recipe. Read More

I liked this drink. I think next time I will make it without the honey flavor. It's good, but different. The sugar sweetens the drink enough. 10 medium limes equaled about a cup of lime juice for me. P.S.- To anyone who thinks they are making this drink more "healthy" by using artificial sweeteners instead of sugar, artificial sweeteners are anything BUT healthy. Add the sugar and bask in your vitamin C allotment. Read More

Just the right amount of tartness in this recipe! YUM! We used a garlic press to juice the key limes which made it much easier and faster to get 1 cup of juice. Read More

Very good. The proportions were perfect for our tastes. It took six medium limes to make a cup of juice. I did make a simple syrup with one cup of the water then added that. I was worried about grittiness of the sugar. This one's a keeper. Read More

This is a wonderful refreshing drink. Okay so it's only around 60 degrees out right now but come summer I'll be whipping this up to sip by the pool. I had a bag of limes that needed using as they were starting to turn. I wanted a quick simple drink recipe and found this. I'm so glad I did! Thanks for a winner! Read More
