What you’ll need:

1 pound green grapes

3 asian pears, coarsely chopped

1 vitamin C tablet, crushed to a powder

1 1.5 litre bottle of dry white whine (we used a Pinot Grigio)

You can serve this drink by itself or over ice. If you plan ahead you can put some grapes in the freezer to make “ice cubes” that will chill your drink but not dilute the great taste!
