After reading this recipe, I thought the flavor of this drink might be a little plain. Boy, was I wrong! I loved everything about this drink, from the color to the pulp to the flavor! I used regular oranges, I kept the skin on my plum and loaded up on red grapes. Seltzer water was perfect for me while my MIL used filtered water in order to avoid the carbonation. If you don't like the pulp that this drink provides, you could easily strain it out before adding seltzer water. Thank you for a delicious and refreshing summer drink!
