Very good! I used frozen berries, which I ended up not using the sieve with so all the seeds are in it. I also subbed some club soda for the water which made it somewhat carbonated. One of my favorite drinks!
This recipe is outstanding! My family loves it! I used 1/2 cup granulated xylitol and 1/2 cup organic sugar to reduce the sugar calories - and it tasted superb. (I am afraid to go 100% xylitol due to the side effects of xylitol...)
