It's a lot of sugar. I felt almost drunk after my first glass of it on an empty stomach. Didn't do that again. But you may be able to handle it. If your going to make your own someone on here did a test and found that grapefruit juice dissolved the stones faster. I think the test is in one of the archives. Why not make the grapefruit juice. You can use a simple hand held juicer to do that instead of a machine. Less cleanup. And here is a tip. Buy the green ones. They are not overripe and taste sweeter. The pink ones look prettier but are overripe hence bitterer.
