  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 cups mixed fruit , see note
  • 1 750ml bottle red wine , merlot, zinfandel or pinot noir, see note
  • 1/4 cup brandy


  • Add sugar and water and 1 cup of fruit to a saucepan. Heat over medium low heat until it boils and the sugar is dissolved, just a few minutes. Strain fruit from sugar syrup, save fruit. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Mix wine, brandy, saved cooked fruit and remaining fruit in a large pitcher. Add 1/4 cup of the cooled simple syrup. Chill for at least 8 hours.
  • Before serving, taste and add more simple syrup as desired to taste.
  • If you want to bulk up the recipe to serve more people, add up to 4 cups of club soda to the pitcher.


Use any combination of the following fruits:
  • Apples
  • Stone fruits (peaches, plums, etc)
  • Mixed Berries
  • Citrus (oranges or limes)
Use any red wine you enjoy drinking, but I recommend merlot, zinfandel or pinot noir.
