Thanks everyone! I found a really fantastic recipe on

yield: Makes about 100 servings


  • 2 gallons Zinfandel
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup Cointreau
  • 2 quarts orange juice
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 12 to 16 ice cubes
  • 2 quarts chilled club soda
  • 3 oranges, thinly sliced
  • 3 lemons, thinly sliced

Thoroughly chill all ingredients. Pour the wine, brandy and Cointreau into a large punch bowl. Stir orange and lemon juice with the sugar until sugar has dissolved. Then add to bowl and stir to blend. Add ice cubes and soda and garnish with fruit slices. Serve in 4-ounce punch glasses or wineglasses.

We scaled down the proportions, left out the lemon juice and sugar, swapped Sprite for club soda and added a LOT more fruit (lemons, oranges, apples, pineapple and pears). It was delicious!
