I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure I’d call this dessert?! – definitely not one to give the children!
1 Cup White Granulated Sugar
2 Cups of Claret or similar Red Wine
1 Bottle of Soda
1/2 Cup of Pineapple Syrup – if desired
Squeeze the juice from the lemon, cut up the rind and cover with the sugar. Leave to stand for 1/2 an hour. Mix until sugar is dissolved and add one cup of claret. Leave to stand for another 1/2 hour. Add pineapple syrup if desired and soda. Sweeten to taste and serve very well chilled.
