Two 750-ml bottles Lambrusco wine

2 cups club soda 

Spiced Syrup:

10 cardamom pods, crushed

8 cloves

2 cinnamon sticks


  1. In a pitcher or punch bowl, combine the apples, oranges, orange juice, orange liqueur and Spiced Syrup; stir with a wooden spoon. Let sit for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to marry. Add the Lambrusco and club soda and stir to combine. Serve over ice.

Spiced Syrup:
