How to Make the Perfect Lemonade

This perfect lemonade is the ultimate refreshing drink on a hot day. Fresh mint ice cubes add an extra hint of flavor.

Directions
1. 
Place cloves and vanilla bean in center of a double-thick 6-inch square of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth. Bring corners of cloth together; tie closed with clean string. Pour apple-cranberry juice into a large container or pitcher. Add plums and spice bag. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
2. 
Remove and discard cheesecloth bag. Stir in Gewurztraminer. Serve beverage and plum slices over ice. (Or omit the ice and heat the juice mixture and wine in a 4-quart Dutch oven until hot. Serve in heatproof mugs.) Makes 10 to 12 servings.

Variation

  • *Nonalcoholic Option:

    Substitute two 12-ounce cans chilled ginger ale for the Gewurztraminer, and serve over ice.
