Nutrition
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 cucumber, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 mango, peeled pitted and finely diced
  • 12 sprigs fresh mint, divided
  • 1 cup ginger ale

Directions

  1. Stir sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons hot water in a large pitcher until dissolved.
  2. Add wine, cucumber, and mango. Be sure the mango is firm.
  3. Remove leaves from 6 sprigs of mint; stir into pitcher.
  4. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours and up to 6 hours. When the fruit sinks, the wine is ready.
