It was alright, but not worth the effort. Made it for fourth of july but the kids preferred the instant pink lemonade we had on hand.

Made this for memorial day and it is perfect! It's delicious and takes a bit like pink lemonade. I had to use more than 8 lemons though to make 2 cups (about 10 large lemons). I'll make it again for my son's birthday party.
