Expert Tips

The nice thing about this fruity, refreshing drink is that inexpensive liqueur, vodka and wine can be used because the flavor doesn't rely solely upon alcohol. Try Triple Sec for the orange liqueur and a Chablis Blanc or Chardonnay for the dry white wine.

For a decorative effect, cut notches out of the citrus peel on some of the fruit slices.
