    This was good, everyone at the party seemed to enjoy it, but I made a couple modifications. I added a half a can of lemonade concentrate and a liter of lemon-lime seltzer water. I used an extra peach instead of a plum. I think there was too much apple, and although the instructions call for slicing the fruit thinly, I think small chunks work better for drinks. The slices tended to just stick together.
