    I am wanting to make this for my son’s Spanish class next week for Cinco de Mayo. When you say add a splash of seltzer, should I pour all of it in the pitcher for ease of serving? If I substitute strawberries for the watermelon and pineapple for the cantelope, I’m assuming I’d still do 12 cups & 4 cups, correct?

    Thank you! We enjoy watching your show on PBS.
