    For you information, vegans definitely do not eat honey. Let me explain: We consider it cruel as the bees make it for their own dietary needs, that is to feed their hives and sustain their young. The production of honey from a single bee over its entire lifetime is only one-twelfth of a teaspoon! So each tablespoon of honey represents the workload of thirty six bees!! Furthermore, to obtain the honey, the bees are smoked out of their hives, which goes straight into their eyes and respiratory system. Bees are killed in this process. Please remove the vegan label or adjust your recipe accordingly.  -  16 Oct 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. I made this exactly according to the recipe except I didn't have honey, but kept all the other measurements the same and it was perfect for my taste! I like the little extra tartness of lime over lemon.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was good but had to double the water the original recipe is way too tart and sweet. Would use less sugar if I it make again.  -  29 Sep 2008
