Southern Kickin' Fruit Cocktail
Wine & Fruit - with a little more!
- 2 - 4 c. Wine Can be a wine that is not the best, maybe just one you don't like. Sangria always works for this, too. I have only used red & blushes, though. The ones I prefer for this recipe usually happen to be either tart, dull, dry or just yucky in general. I don't use sweet ones, since I add a simple syrup and the fruit will add to the sweetness also.
- 2 - 4 c. Fruit (Mix) I have used all types of fruit: melons, berries, apples, oranges, pineapples, peaches and plums. I prefer fresh, but canned or frozen can be included, also.
- 1/4 - 1/2 c. simple syrup
Make up simple syrup ahead of time so it can be chilled. Cut up all the fruit put it in a bowl add all the liquids, stir and refrigerate. I love for mine to have at least a 4 hour minimum set time, but 1-2 days makes it even better. I scoop in a spoonful or two fruit then pour the wine elixir over it. I you chose to freeze some into Ice cube or just put frozen fruit in the glass that works. too!
