Outstanding! I made it exactly as written, and after tasting, I decided to add a couple more basil leaves to suit my tastes. For my second batch I had to use a lime because I was out of lemon and couldn't tell a difference. This tastes like something at a fancy restuarant - can't wait to make it again (and again, and again). Thanks for sharing!!!

Perfect! I served this to a large group of ladies, and the comments were "Refreshing!", "So nicely balanced!", "Please send us the recipe!". In order to serve this to a group, I made up several containers of all of the ingredients, except ice. Whenever we needed more, I added one container and ice to the blender - made it a snap! This is such a nice recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent! Made it as stated. I had to use more ice, but my ice maker makes pretty small pieces. Very refreshing & good.
