It got me pretty drunk. That automatically earns it 5 stars.
This was absolutely delicious. I only changed it by cutting the recipe in half. I used Cointreau and I only poured the gingerale in my single serving at a time and not to the whole batch. I have some leftover for tomorrow. I used some apple,grapes,blueberries and limes. This is such a refreshing drink after a hot day. Thanks so much for the post of the recipe Susie. Made for the Comfort Cafe '09
I made this with Bolla Chianti, Cointreau, and Courvoisier. I used half lemon juice and half lime juice. Then loaded it up with fruit - a can of pineapple chunks, a can of sliced peaches, apples, strawberries, and oranges. I also doubled the recipe because the Chianti was a larger bottle. It was delish. My DH and I went to a cooking class with a bunch of friends. It was a big hit and will definitely be making this again! Yummo!
WOW! I didn't add sugar, since I used a sweet red wine (concord-ish). I didn't have brandy, so I doubled the triple sec. I didn't have lemon juice, so I added pineapple juice when I garnished with pineapple chunks (also ornage slices). I made it for a picnic tomorrow, but I'm not sure it'll make it that long...
We didn't have lemonade to add, so we added sugar--but the result was very good! We will definitely make the recipe again, with lemonade, LOL!! :)
This had a nice taste, but next time I would make it without the ginger ale; the Triple Sec and lemonade concentrate added plenty of sweetness for my taste. Thanks for posting!
