2 bottles of a dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc works well)
1 cup of triple sec
1/2 cup of a berry flavored vodka
1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup of simple syrup (see how to make it below)
1 cup of blueberries
1 1/2 of cups hulled, sliced strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
1 1/2 cups of pineapple chunks
Combine all the above ingredients in a pitcher or a large punch bowl and stir well. Cover and refrigerate mixture for at least 4 hours.
Serve up well chilled with a nice size scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or you can serve over ice.
How to Make Simple Syrup
To make 1/2 cup simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup water and add 1/2 cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let cool. Now it’s simple syrup!
Use fresh fruit for this recipe. Frozen just won’t be great.
To make star-shaped pineapple pieces, cut long & wide pieces of pineapple off the side of the fresh fruit. use a star cutter to cut shapes.
