    Altered ingredient amounts. I poured the lemondade on the mint leaves and it infused through the drink. It was wonderful!  -  14 Dec 2009


    Absolute hit at my Christmas BBQ. My guests stole into the kitchen and decantered the lot! Thank you for one of the most refreshing drinks I've had the pleasure of drinking.  -  14 Dec 2009


    Unbelievably easy and yummy. Makes a large batch. I added more vodka and brandy than what is called for and skipped the cherries. Perfect!  -  26 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
