This is a deliciously cool French traditional summer cocktail that always wows my guests. But be warned, it goes down a little too easily! Make a large punch-bowlful for a large gathering, or a jugful for your family barbecue. It suits every occasion! Here in Mediterranean France, it's often served at summer garden parties.

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir wine, lemonade, lemon juice, syrup, and cognac together in a pitcher; refrigerate 8 hours to overnight. Garnish with lemon, lime, and orange slices to serve.


Cook's Notes:

To vary, use champagne instead of white wine and omit the lemonade.

You can also flavor with fruit liqueurs: adding 1 1/2 fluid ounce creme de framboise (raspberry liqueur) and a little lime-flavored syrup to the champagne variant makes it truly great!
