Wow refreshing is an understatement Albert! This is a great recipe! Just the perfect combination of lemon and pineapple. Not too sweet not too tart; and bubbly to boot! Love this!Thanks. Read More

We made this drink exactly as written for a summer BBQ and it was NOT a hit. The honey gave the whole thing an odd after taste. We tried doctoring it up with additional lemons then some orange liqueur. No luck. There was something just off with the flavor and it missed the mark for everyone. I gave it 3 stars because I love the idea of it. Sorry we probably won't make this again. Read More

This is one of those drinks that you make when you want to treat yourself. Sometimes I want more than lemonade or a soda. This does the trick and is so good! For an adult version I added a shot of gin and there were raves all around. Read More

This is sooooooo good! I did add more of the syrup than the recipe called for (it was too weak) but other than that it is fantastic. I added a little rum once (or twice or...) and it made a great adult drink. Read More

Very refreshing summer drink. I loved having the syrup in the fridge although it didn't last too long since everyone wanted more.... Read More

We LOVED these!! My husband said it was one of the most refreshing drinks he's ever had (another fave is Ginger Lemonade from this site). It was easy to do and looked so elegant. I really love this recipe and I'm so glad I tried it. We're always buying Knudson spritzers and now we can make our own! Oh I cut back on the sugar like another reviewer to 2/3 cup. Will make again!
