"I like to keep this in the refrigerator all the time as it nice and quick, you just pour a bit in a glass add water and ice and Voila.... Lemonade. This is a cute gift idea, just pour into a fancy bottle and paste a label with directions on it."

Before getting on with the review I want to say," I wish I could give this recipe way more than 5 *'s because it sure deserves it :)". Since I was making it just for me,the recipe was reduced by half and due to what was on hand some changes were made to the recipe and they are as follows. Instead of fresh juice bottled had to be used,and dried lemon peel was used. I did use the syrup as directed,and it was some of the best Lemonade I've ever had.And if it tastes this good using what I had on hand,I just can't begin to imagine how much better this is going to be using fresh. This recipe was made for two events,the " Billboard Recipe Tag " and the " Citrus Festival " portion of the " Summer Vacation Tour " in the Games Forum. Also,I must say I'm very pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe :). Thank you so much for posting a recipe that will certainly be made many times this summer. " Keep Smiling :) "
