  • 8 cups dry red wine
  • 4 cups orange juice chilled (carton juice is fine)
  • 1 medium orange, sliced thin crosswise
  • 1 medium lemon, sliced thin crosswise
  • 1 small pear, diced (use another apple if no pear)
  • 1 medium apple, diced
  • 4 cups of soda water chilled
  • 1 shot of banana liqueur


Combine the wine, banana liqueur, orange juice, orange and lemon slices in a large pitcher.  Mix well, cover and refrigerate.  Add the pear and apple one hour before drinking. 

Add the soda water lastly and mix well and serve over ice – yummy!

–      In a rush, just mix all ingredients together and serve over ice!!

–      Experimental mood – mix to taste – try different fruits – substitute banana liqueur for Grand Marnier or Cointreau or your favourite spirit or liqueur that you think might work!!!
