Taylor Swift has a new album out called Red and it’s extremely popular, so I thought it would be fun to label this cocktail “Red” (besides I do like the color)

Whether you are having a holiday party yourself or you want to take a new adult beverage to your family holiday gathering, this cocktail will please just about everyone.  The drink is very easy to make and can be done head of time, which I recommend because I like the flavors to infuse as much as possible.  Enjoy!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com


In a large pitcher mix the following;

1 bottle of dry red wine (must be dry not sweet)

1/2 cup brandy

1/4 cup orange liqueur (not orange flavor like triple sec)

2 Tlb. sugar

Stir to combine well with a whisk.  Slice 2 oranges and 1 Granny Smith apple.  Place in the pitcher.   Chill

Just before you serve the cocktail add 1-1/2 cups seltzer water (non flavored)
