So I have been thinking about making a summer time drink (something sweet) and have been running out of time if i want to fully age it. So i stopped by the super market and this is what came up with.

4 gal. of apple cider from concentrate
90 oz. of apricot nectar
1lb. of orange honey
5 oz. raisins (never used before- just read it somewhere)

No boil or anything threw raisins, nectar and juice into the fermenting bucket heated up some juice and honey to together to get the honey workable and then threw that in to. Yeast was just a muntons package that came with a kit i had laying around. Yeast pitched at room temp (72F) OG 1.062 and now i am waiting to see some bubbles in the air lock.

Anyone done something like this? What should i look for or expect?

Any opinion helps- thanks in advance!

You can expect a visit from me in 3-4 weeks !!! I'll be the one with a mason jar in his hand and a thirsty look on his face!
Seriously, update us on how this concoction sounds great!

Probably taste fine. Will not be sweet though, because it's all simple sugars.
