"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802
