  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1 apple sliced
  • 2 oranges one sliced and one juiced
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • optional: maple syrup or honey to sweeten
  • optional: sparkling water
  • garnish with extra orange slices


  • Dice the apple, orange, and lemon into small pieces. Make sure to leave the peels on and toss them into the pitcher along with the orange juice.

  • Pour the wine, brandy and any sweetener into the pitcher. Then stir everything together until it's all combined. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. The longer it sits, the more time the flavors can meld together.

  • Serve this in individual glasses over ice. Then top with sparkling water if you'd like!

  • I prefer to cut the fruit fairly small (I quarter each citrus slice), so that I can easily top an individual glass with a little bit of fruit.
  • If you love my modern pitcher, make sure to grab it! As well as my wine glasses.
