Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Refreshing! This delicious drink is easy to make and pleasing to the senses. It has just the right amount of sweetness and avoids the cloying sweetness that can happen with other sweeteners. It is particularly delicious for those of us that are pregnant in that it includes sickness-reducing ginger, and somewhat lets us feel that we are able to have a "drink" without having the alcohol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing and great benefits First off, I tried this so I could enter the sweepstakes but I am so glad I did try it. It was very easy to prepare and it tasted so good and refreshing. The benefits in itself are a reason to drink this but it helps that it's so delicious. I definitely recommend this and I would recommend it.
