      I always enjoy a good punch instead of soda. I like to add strawberry and pineapple to a fruit punch. Both sweet tastes without being overly so.

      After reading this lens I can hardly wait for summer. In Costa Rica people make drinks from watermelon or cantaloupe with just a bit of sugar, ice and water. They are delicious and refreshing. I can hardly wait to try your recipes.

      Sounds great. Is fine sugar the same as icing sugar (powdered sugar) or is it more like a caster sugar (white sugar)? I like the background you used for the recipes. Lens looks great.
