1bottleWhite Winedoesn't need to be an expensive bottle
Cut up a variation of 3 different types of fruit (anything from apples, oranges, grapes, strawberries, nectarines, peaches). If using whole fruit, I typically cut up 3 whole pieces (3 apples, 3 oranges, etc), and i eyeball the "pieces" of fruit, such as strawberries and grapes.
Marinate the fruit in light rum overnight
Combine 1 1/3 rd cups of water with 1/2 cup sugar (or Splenda!), 4 cinnamon sticks, and a handful of fresh mint leaves.
Bring the mixture to a boil, and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely (depending on time constraints, sometimes this requires putting it in the fridge for a bit!).
Combine 1 bottle of the cheapest white wine you can find (seriously, the mixture makes ANY bottle of wine taste good!) with the sugar mixture, fruit, and another handful of fresh mint leaves.
