When I visited Punta del Leste, Uruguay, I noticed a lot of people in bars and restaurants ordering this large jars of white wine mixed with fruits. It did not take us long to join the crowd and ordering our own. Delicious and refreshing, Clericot is traditionally prepared with white wine, but I prefer to use sparkling wine because of the bubbles! Use a dry white or brut sparkling wine, and add sugar to taste (I like with 4 to 5 tablespoons, but some might like it a bit sweeter). Enjoy and celebrate!
- 1 bottle of sparkling wine (Brut)
- 1 small apple, diced with skin on
- 1 peeled sliced orange
- 2 small peaches, diced and peeled
- 1/3 pineapple, diced and peeled
- 5 strawberries cut into quarts
- 5 cherries, cut into quarts and seeds removed (optional)
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
Prepare all the fruit in a pitcher; add sugar, and enough sparkling wine to cover the fruit. Let the fruit absorb the alcohol for a couple of hours in the fridge. When ready to serve, pour the remaining sparkling wine and add about 3 cups of ice. Add more sugar if you prefer it sweeter.
