Just bottled my lemon-lime Skeeter Pee and HOLY GUACAMOLE this stuff is good. It's hard not to chug it. Even my wife (who doesn't like anything I make) said it was good and that she could drink a lot of it. Planning to take a couple of magnums for consuming on the beach this week.

I made a 3/4 lemon, 1/4 lime batch, I didn't care much for it... until I backsweetened with 2:1 sugar:lemon juice. Now it's great. My hubby, who hates wine, really likes it.

One 1.5 magnum drank on the beach over about 2 hours.
Reminds me of a Jimmy Buffet song ...

I'm making this again.

That batch I just bottled last night was six 750 mL bottles, and 7 32 ounce mason jars. I am down to one bottle and three mason jars, and I expect the rest of it to go this weekend. Sheesh! 😱

What about makimg a simple syrup with Lime juice and sugar added to lemon skeete pee, think the lime would be detectable? Are there any problem with adding juice after stabilized?

I may be wrong but if you added sorbate, I don't see why there would be any problem.
