I didn't like this at all. Maybe less sugar would be the trick. Read More

My husband & kids thinks its' pretty tangy & sour. But I love it. Next time I make it I would have to add more sugar just for those who don't like sour. Read More

POW! Great recipe! Everyone at my office loved it. The best was when I put a cup of the Pink Honey Lemonade in a blender with Ice and added to it about 3 oz. of Coconut Cream Rum and hit the blend button. Creamy frothy and yummy! Everyone who tasted it said it tasted like a cream-cicle! Very refreshing. Read More

I took a small detour from the recipe the second time I made it. It was great the first time but more than amazing the second time. I mixed a cup and a half of sugar with probably 20 raspberries and a small amount of strawberry extract. I added two tablespoons of honey and a half a cup of brown sugar. I then added 3/4s cup of water and boiled it over the stove. After it was boiling I whisked it so the raspberries broke up into just the seeds. When it was starting to foam I turned the heat off and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile I put a cup of lime juice into a standard sized container and added 7 cups of water. Then I added about a tablespoon of honey and let that dissolve in it. I added 6 slices of lemon. After that sat as long as the loose syrup on the stove I strained the syrup. This takes out all of the raspberry seeds so you don't have to chew them. Then I poured it into the container with the lime juice lemons and water mixed it up and served it right away in a glass of ice. The family raved. I found this is really tasty and only slightly deviating from your basic recipe. Try it out! It's really good. Thanks for the idea/recipe!! Read More

Made a triple vat of this for a cook out -then had to make more! Had about a quart left so I put it in the ice cream maker to make a sorbet. Served with a simple sugar cookie and it made a dessert my family raved over. Thanks Rico! Read More

I liked this recipe and it was a nice summer treat. The first time I made it was in the winter and very sour. And in the summer it came out sweet. So i guess it depends on the strawberries. Read More
