No need to buy expensive wine! I just use a gallon jug or 4 bottles the cheap stuff: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir etc. Got a big group coming over? Double or triple the recipe. You can make it up to 2 days ahead. Perfect make-ahead party cocktail. Looks greats in clear pitchers or those large clear self-serve beverage dispensers.

I usually stick to the very traditional slices of lemons,limes and oranges but like the idea of more assorted fruits. I fully agree with you…don’t waist money on good wine..a gallon of the ‘inexpensive’ wine works very well !
WOW, this is YUMMMOOO! Great job Amy!
