IntroductionMy brother-in-law passed the original recipe to me. I reduced the sugar by using a liquid sweetener and Tropicana 50% less sugar orange juice. Fruit pieces are not counted in the nutrition count. My brother-in-law passed the original recipe to me. I reduced the sugar by using a liquid sweetener and Tropicana 50% less sugar orange juice. Fruit pieces are not counted in the nutrition count.
3 1/4 cups of red wine (I used Sutter Home)
6 drops of Sweetzfree Liquid Sweetener (this is equivalent to
1/4 cup of sugar)
1 cup of Tropicana Trop50 Orange Juice (50% less sugar)
1 cup of Dole Pineapple Juice (I used the cans (6 oz +
2 oz of another can) for the nutrition count)
1/2 cup Cointreau Orange Liquor
You can add small pieces of any fruit you like. We added some pineapple pieces and oranges. Other fruits could be lemons, apples, etc. Remember to add the fruit piece to the total nutrition counts for this recipe.
Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher (at least 2 quarts). Cut up fruit into small pieces (1 orange, 1 apple, 1 lemon, pieces of pineapple, etc.) Refrigerate to blend flavors; may be refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
Number of Servings: 8

My daughter & I really enjoyed it. The first time I had it at my brother-in-law's it was too sweet since they used sugar & regular orange juice. Thanks for the comment!
