Makes a pitcher
1 quart decent but cheap red wine 1/2 cup brandy
1/4 cup sugar -- bar sugar is easiest 2 oz. lime juice
1 orange, sliced thin 1/2 cup of orange juice
1 tray ice cubes

Mix all in a large pitcher, allow to cool before serving.  Serve with an orange slice in each glass.

Notes and Variations

Our basic summertime favorite, sweet and refreshing.  Be careful with this -- it tastes much weaker than it really is, and can knock you flat if you don't pay attention.
