The very best summer punch. Easy to make and absolutely delicious. Quantities used and ingredients for this cocktail are easily amended according to taste and available ingredients.


  • 1 bottle of red wine
  • 1 bottle of fizzy lemonade
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced finely
  • 1 orange, peel left on, sliced finely
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2oz/2 level tablespoons caster/superfine sugar
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)

You're certainly going to have to experiment to find your own special recipe. Mine is:1.5 liter cheap wine; red zin or chianti, rose or blush, or white wine or chablis. 2 oranges, 1 lemon, 2 limes, any other fruit you think might be interesting, sugar. Wash fruit thoroughly. Pat dry.Then, in a pitcher that's large enough to hold all 1.5 liters of wine, plus a lot of ice and all the other ingredients. Cut all fruit in half and squeeze juice into pitcher then throw the entire rind and pulp into pitcher as well. (If it's not a squeezable fruit, process it however you think best. Berries can be mashed, kiwi can be cut thin, etc. Do not add skins if, like banana or kiwi, they are not normally consumed.) Add the least amount of sugar you think you'll need (maybe 1/4 cup).Pour in all of the wine. Stir. Check for sweetness, add more sugar if desired. Add ice to fill pitcher.Optional: add 1/2 cup brandy or sherry.
