Non-Alcoholic Apricot Spritzer

My kids love drinking carbonated drinks. Yes, I know they are bad for me. "Cokes" as we call them here in Texas are a rare treat with a good meal. This one is one of my favorite mixed carbonated drinks because I love the taste of apricots, peaches and nectarines. This would make a good party punch, too... or just something different to serve your guests when they come over for dinner. If you 'drink', you can always add some vodka... however, we don't drink alcohol, so we just enjoy this the good-old-fashioned way... without liquor.

2 cups mixed strawberries with red and black raspberries
1/4 cup tiny chunks of peach, nectarine or apricot
2 cups apricot nectar (one can of chilled nectar will do)
2 cups seltzer, chilled
2 cups ginger ale, chilled
2 cups white grape juice, chilled

If you don't have the seltzer and ginger ale, you can use Sprite. I have a bottle of Sprite and apricot nectar waiting on me outside so we can make this again. We have also made it without the extra grape juice and it is still good. Mix it up a bit and add in red sparkling grape or just purple grape instead to see if you like it better. Have fun and enjoy your "mixed drink" that even the kids can enjoy!
