Used artificial sweetener and it turned out just fine! Skipped the food coloring and it was plenty colorful on its own. Double it to get a pitcher full to share!

Really yummy! I made it exactly as written, except we left the seeds in and it was great! It's like drinking a little pulp with it. This is a real winner!!! UPDATE: I just tried making this with half blackberries and half peaches (with skin on) and it's super delish too!

Good! We found the flavor to be really intense, but good. I put 4 trays of ice cubes in with the warm drink and put it in the fridge. I also skipped the food coloring. Thanks!
