Claret Cup

Claret is a rich red wine that can be made into a punch with the addition of liquors, fruits and soda. There's a good bit of liquor in this punch all around: the recipe calls for a pitcher that serves four people. I used Copper and Kings brandy, Vitae orange liqueur, and Airfield Cabernet for the spirits.

Add orange slices and mint leaves to each individual glass and top with soda, don't try to mix the soda into the punch where it will go flat. 
  • 16 oz. of Claret or Cabernet wine
  • 2 oz. brandy or cognac (Copper and Kings brandy used)
  • 1 oz. Cointreau (Vitae orange liqueur used)
  • 3 tsp. sugar
  • 8 oz. sparkling water
  • mint sprigs
  • orange slices
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher with ice and stir (leaving out the sparkling water is recommended, though.) Garnish with fruit and mint and serve in wine glasses.
