 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      fifth         red wine
    1      bottle        soda water (10 ounces)
    1      tablespoon    sugar -- or more, to taste
    2      ounces        brandy -- or more, to taste
    3      large         oranges
    1                    lemon
    1                    peach
    1                    lime
 
 Take one large bowl, suitable for use as a  serving piece.  We use a large
 clear plastic bowl.   Add wine, sugar, juice of 2-1/2 oranges, juice of 1/2
 lime,  juice of 1/2 lemon. Slice the other 1/2 orange,  remaining 1/2 lemon
 and 1/2 lime into rounds;  remove pit from peach and cut remaining fruit
 into thin wedges.  Add all fruit to the wine bowl.  Stir.  Cover with
 plastic wrap.  Macerate in refrigerator for three hours or more.  Remove,
 add bottle of soda and portion of brandy.  Mix gently and serve over ice.
 
 Notes:
 
 Wine - the wine should be somewhat thin and sharp to the taste, as opposed
 to rich and fruity (and expensive).  Don't use your “good” wine for this.
 
 Bowl - For festive occasions use a large, pretty bowl with a block of ice.
 
 Other fruits (cherries, apples, pineapple, grapes, strawberries, etc.) may
 also be used, but should be cut or sliced to promote maceration.   
 
 Lou’s note:   This is a standard afternoon treat when we go for our holiday
 at the beach.   Very refreshing.
