Recipe by Jessica K
READY IN: 10mins
SERVES: 10-12
YIELD: 1 gallon


  • 1
    (1 1/2 liter) bottle cheap red wine
  • 12
    cup sugar
  • 1
    cup water
  • 2
    oranges, sliced into rounds
  • 2
    limes, sliced into rounds
  • 1
    lemon, sliced into rounds, any other fruit you can think to put in it. I have used apples and strawberries


  • Put sugar and water in saucepan over medium heat. Stir until dissolved. You're making a simple syrup so you want the sugar to just be melted into the water, not boiling. Take off heat and let cool.
  • Pour wine into gallon pitcher and put sliced fruits in it. Stir.
  • Pour cooled syrup into the wine mixture and stir real good. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • I usually take the fruits out after 3 days, if by some miracle it has not been all drunk up by then.
  • You can use such cheap wine cause the fruits and sugar make the wine turn really good.
