Serves 6 to 8


  • 2 1/2 cups white grape juice
  • 3/4 cup seedless red or green grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice (from 1 grapefruit)
  • 1/2 cup passion fruit juice or nectar (or guava juice or nectar)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (from 1 lemon), plus 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice (from 1 lime)
  • 1 Bartlett pear, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup club soda, chilled
  • 1 cup ginger ale, chilled
  • Fresh mint, for garnish


    Active time: 20 minutes
    Total time: 4 1/2 hours (includes chilling time)

    In a large pitcher, put grape juice, grapes, grapefruit juice, passion fruit juice, lemon juice, lemon slices, lime juice and pear and stir to combine. Cover and chill until cold, 4 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, gently stir in club soda and ginger ale. Serve over ice and garnish with mint.

    To make a version using wine, replace 2 cups of the white grape juice and the club soda with 1 chilled 750-milliliter bottle of Sauvignon Blanc or unoaked Chardonnay, or simply add a bottle of wine to the recipe as is to serve a bigger crowd.
