6 – 8 large ripe strawberries, hulled
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar, or to taste
1 bottle (750 ml) dry red wine, preferably Spanish rioja
1/4 cup (60 ml) Cognac or other good quality brandy
Club soda, chilled
Ice (optional)

Combine the lime, lemon, and orange slices, strawberries, and sugar in a large
pitcher.
Mash with a wooden spoon to release the juices. Add the wine and brandy and stir
to
dissolve the sugar. Taste and add more sugar if necessary. Refrigerate for at
