Terrific! I made this exactly as written with one exception - used Stevia (fake sugar) in place of sugar. It's hard to tell how much juice a lime will provide so these will taste a tad bit limey...

This one is worth all the effort, I used 4 key limes and 2 tsp. of Splenda sweetner, all that I need now is some beach sand to sink my toes into! Thanks for the great recipe!

These did not turn out how we had hoped...and they were WAY too strong!

Great! I used limeade instead of sweetened lime juice.
