    Delicious! Very refreshing. Served it on ice with a taco salad. Yum. I would experiment with using a who can of limeade and lesser amount of lemonade. But was delicious as it stands! It would be very good too for a summer bridal or baby shower!!!!

    I thought this was really good. As the other reviewer said it was light and refreshing. I did add a little more water and soda so it wasn't quite as sweet.
