Top Tips and recipe FAQs
Since this drink has lemon lime soda as one of it's ingredients, I do not recommend this recipe be made in advance or stored for long. It's an easy recipe and only takes 5 minutes, so only make it right before serving it.
I know this drink has a lot of sugar, given all the ingredients. One tip is to use sugar free soda so you can cut down on sugar a little bit.
