Chef's Notes

For an alcoholic version, 1 bottle chilled red wine or Champagne is suggested. Feel free to experiment with the flavors. For example, try orange-mango juice! Or skip the orange entirely and go for cranberry-grape juice with white white or white sparkling grape juice. The possibilities are endless! Serve chilled.


  1. Made it for a 80th birthday party - young and old alike loved it. We were not allowed to have anything red for beverages at the venue so used sparkling white grape juice instead. It was a huge hit. Granddaughters' request it for Christmas as well
  2. I made this recipe tonight for our Bible Study group and everyone loved it. We drank it cold and warm and both ways was delicious. Everyone went crazy over it.
  3. Delicious cider! Will definitely make it again. Might spike it with some Vodka for adults
  4. it was very tasty like almost apple punch
  5. I made this for my lunch tables thanksgiving potluck and everyone loved it! Although I didn't include the sparkling red grape juice it was still very yummy. I put it in a cooler with ice blocks and even though the cooler barely fit in my locker it stayed cold all the way until lunch time! - Read more ...
