  • 2 small Oranges or 3 Tangerines
  • a few grapes
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 small cucumber

  • White Wine or Fruit Juice


  1. Prepare the fruit and cut into attractive small pieces or leave whole if small.
  2. Slice the cucumber finely.
  3. Put all into a bowl, add sugar to taste and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  4. Cover with inexpensive white wine or fruit juice.
  5. Leave for 6 hours in a cool place before serving. To serve ladle into wine glasses and top with soda if liked.


Keep the fruit submerged with a plate to prevent browning.
