This is so great and I make it all the time. Fresh lime juice is key, I tried it once with the bottled stuff and it wasn't nearly as good. For the lime simple syrup, I only use 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/3 cup of water. 3/4 cup of sugar is a very sweet syrup and fruit is sweet as well. I usually use two mangoes diced, 2 kiwis, peeled cut in half then sliced, quartered strawberries and one pineapple (the kind in the produce section that's already had the outside and core removed) that I dice. Very pretty, colorful and tasty!
