This is in fact a very REFRESHING beverage recipe. I used half sugar and half splenda granular and it turned out great. Perfect drink for a hot summer day or just after a workout. To garnish I froze pieces of flat leaf parsley in ice cube trays with water and added a couple to each glass. Great recipe light and refreshing not too sweet.
I did as someone else mentioned and used less water. To make a gallon, use 1 c. lime juice, 1 c. sugar and 1 gallon water. Could add cherry juice or Koolaid to add another flavor.
I think this would also be too weak. I used 6 limes, 1/2c sugar, and add water to make 2 quarts, and it wasn't bad. Next time, I'd probably use 8 limes, and maybe a little more sugar. I like mine not too sweet... it seem as 'refreshing' to me.
Bad recipe - it came out too watery. Be sure to taste as you're adding the sugar water.
This recipe turned out okay but I wish that instead of listing a number of limes, the author had mentioned a measurement of lime juice. I used about 20 small limes and it was too weak. I recommend using half the amount of water and then tasting it to see if more is needed.
Way too weak. We used the same amount of sugar and 15 limes for 2 quarts of water, and it was good.
Good recipe!! I added ice becuase in my own drink because i like it nice and cold. Not too sweet and good amounts of lime and sugar. Just a little bit watery for people who like it sweeter though.
Perfect, made with 2/3 cup Splenda rather than sugar. I think maybe some people don't realize that all limes are different, you may have to adjust the sweetner or add more water. This is just GREAT. My 12 year old made this for us!
