Mine looks nothing like the picture! (how often does that really happen!?)... but it tastes good. The flavor is pleasantly unique. Definitely a keeper for weeknights or a friendly get together. I did feel that some of the ingredients were wasteful (half a container of frozen orange juice?! No one in my house drinks it so it went to waste).
