    I didn't use a Juiceman, just an old-fashioned hand juicer. Very lemony-lemon drop. And just the right amount of sweet. Good stuff.  -  05 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was searching around on this site for a vodka drink and found this tasty drink. Very nice lemon drop, allows you to make it as sweet as you desire.  -  07 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very tasty. It's a new drink for me, and I needed a little extra sweetness for my personal taste, but the recipe does allow for that. I used simple syrup in place of sugar and it worked well. I also used yellow sugar on the rim of my glass. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  08 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
