Ingredients

Choose seasonal fruit (apples, pears, grapes, oranges, kiwis, peaches, pineapple, cherries, apricots)

Sugar

White wine Garzón Pinot Grigio or Garzón Rosé Pinot Noir

Fresh mint

Preparation

Peel and cut all fruits into cubes of similar size. Place the fruits in a two-liter glass jar. Add the wine. If you want, add sugar, avoiding an excess as the fruit provides enough sweetness. Mix with a wooden spoon and take to the refrigerator for a few hours, so that the flavors are well integrated. Remove from the refrigerator and add a few mint leaves. With the help of a ladle, serve in long drinking glasses. Consume chilled.

At least three different types of fruits are recommended to make a good clerico. Many variety brings color but the flavors can be uniform in diversity. Ideally, choose 4 or 5 seasonal fruits and combine them to taste, experimenting with different wines each time. Also dry white and rosé wines, it can be prepared with sweet and sparkling wines. We suggest alternating different ingredients, until you find the recipe that best fit to your personal taste.
