I loved this. I followed instructions as listed and didn't find the spices overpowering. I used 2 qt blackberries and 1 qt raspberries because I didn't have as many blackberries as I thought. I mixes up great and is a beautiful color. Thank you for posting!
Dh and I have made this and it is a nice drink mix. We thought the clove was a bit overpowering so next time will use less. We used sprite and also diet. You can also use club soda.
