I loved this cooler wicked. It is so good. Thick, smooth, tart and tangy, it was very refreshing with a lovely flavor. The mint blends beautifully with these fruit, creating a taste experience. It was really easy to make, the hard part was the waiting. Thanks for sharing this treasure, which I will be enjoying often.
