I found this recipe on the internet and we tried it during one of our evening activities and tasted so nice and refreshing. We have to water it down as we only have a bottle of wine. We just put a bottle of 750 ml white wine to 4 liters of the mixed juice.  Just the juice mixture without the wine taste good! Try it you just might like it. Enjoy! (more…)
