1 bottle merlot (can use cabernet or zinfandel)
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1 orange, cut into wedges
2-3 Tablespoons sugar (I used 3)
1 shot rum (I used 2)
2-3 cups Ginger Ale (I used club soda)
Other fruit: strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, peaches, raspberries
Combine wine, lemon slices, orange slices, sugar and rum into a pitcher. Muddle with the back of a large spoon to get the fruit to release some of its juice, and to dissolve the sugar. Put into the fridge. Just before serving, stir in club soda. Serve over ice and fruit.
