Makes 1 pitcher


  • 1 bottle vinho verde
  • 2 cups ginger ale
  • ½ cup Cointreau
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 1 lime, seeded and cut into wedges
  • 1 lemon, seeded and cut into wedges
  • ½ small orange, seeded and cut into wedges
  • ½ cup cubed pineapple
  • ½ cup cubed honeydew melon


  1. Place all prepared fruit into a pitcher.
  2. Pour the vinho verde, Cointreau and 1 cup of ginger ale over the fruit.
  3. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator overnight to allow flavors to mingle.
  4. Just before serving, add a sprig of mint and add with the remaining cup of ginger ale to the pitcher.
  5. Serve over ice, with as much of the fruit as desired. Make sure not to add ice to the pitcher directly or you'll dilute the sangria.
