1/2 bottle brandy (1 1/2 cups brandy, pear preferred)
1-2 oranges cut into half and or quarter slices
2 limes cut into half and or quarter slices
2 lemons cut into half and or quarter slices
2 apples cut into 1" pieces
bunch red grapes
pineapple (optional) 1" pieces
3 bottles of inexpensive Rioja (tempranillo)
1 can frozen limeaid concentrate
1 quart -1 liter sparkling water, lime or lemon flavored
Mix brandy with cut fruit and let sit over night. Next day drain brandy from fruit.
Mix everything together (accepting reserved fruit) Serve on rocks with a few pieces of soaked fruit in each glass
It is nice if you have unsoaked lime wedges for additional garnish and a maraschino cherry.
This is very easy to tweak, depending on what you have on hand.
