In a blender, combine water, cherries, peaches or plums, honey, sugar, salt, almond extract, lemon juice and zest and purée until very smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve placed over a bowl and use a whisk to push as much of the purée through as possible. Discard the pulp and transfer the fruit purée to a large pitcher. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes, or until very cold (up to 2 days).

Add the remaining sliced peaches, cherries and ice to the pitcher. Top with seltzer, stir well to combine and garnish with sprigs of mint. Serve immediately.
