    • This looks REALLY good, and I can’t wait to try it! But, I had a question. Is the ice needed, or is it just there to help break up the sugar when mixing? Would you also recommend substituting the sugar for an equal amount of either honey or agave nectar? I will let you know how it turns out once I get to make and try this, though… I’m excited!
