Default cherry limeaid version of skeeter pee

Well my first batch turned out great. I used cherry koolaid, lime concentrate, and splenda to finish it off. Made for a very tasty hard cherry limeaid!

In primary with dish cloth over and lid loosely sitting on top temp between 19 and 25 C


Forth day of fermentation day six since starting batch.
start sg 1070
Day 3 of fermentation added lemon, yeast nutrient and energizer at 1050 whipped, 3 inch foam head Tasted sweet and lemony no off flavor or smell
Day 4 of fermentation 1032 whipped and again 3 in foam head formed over night

Life got in the way, and I haven't bottled my skeeter pee. I back sweetened my pee about 2 months ago, and it has been sitting in an air locked carboy ever since at room temperature, in a fairly dark room. Is it still okay to bottle, and drink? It appears to still be crystal clear and look okay.

Thanks, I appreciate anybody's input.

I haven't read through the whole thread, but has anyone tried to make this recipe with 2 bottles of lemon juice and 1 bottle of lime juice, as opposed to 3 bottles of lemon juice? I think it'd be interesting to do a lemon lime skeeter pee.

My wife makes an awesome homemade strawberry lemonade would fresh squeezed lemonade work for skeeter pee? I was drinking a glass earlier and was like I got to ask
