Delicious! It came out very very tangy the first time which I surprisingly didn't mind but I'm making it right now and I don't have orange juice on hand so I substituted mango juice. I used about 2/6's cup of sugar instead (so a third less), upped the honey, and it's coming out more sweet and less tangy! Do your own thing with it, it's a delicious basic recipe!
