Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes
  • 1 cup green seedless grapes
  • 2 cups Concord grape juice
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1 bottle cold pinot grigio
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 orange, halved and sliced
Directions
  • Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 1 minute, swirling the pot occasionally, to make sure the sugar is dissolved, then transfer the syrup to a heat-proof container. Cool. The simple syrup will keep for a few weeks sealed in the refrigerator.

  • Put the grapes and 2 tablespoons sugar in the bottom of a large serving pitcher and muddle to crush them. Stir in the grape juice and brandy, and then the pinot grigio. Taste, and add the simple syrup to sweeten, as desired.

  • Stir in the mint and lemon, lime and orange slices. Chill for at least 4 hours. Serve over ice in large wine glasses.
