"This was out of this world! Very nice mix of flavors and very refreshing. Had to look a bit to find apricot nectar, but it was so worth the effort! I personally had to water the mix down because the flavors are so intense, but that means I got nearly a gallon to enjoy!"

"This beverage is delicious. Unique combination of flavors. I especially like the addition of apricot nectar. I did not use mint sprigs, but I was very pleased with the results even without them."
