Tips

  • Serve in tall glasses over crushed ice and decorate with a twist of lemon and a paper umbrella for that retro feel.
  • Cut all the fruit into chunks of roughly the same size - small enough so that they will pour into a glass but not make drinking awkward.
  • You can use peach juice instead of grape juice.
  • Having made this non-alcoholic version, you can use it as a mixer- it works well with vodka.
