Ingredients

  • 2 navel oranges
  • 4 bottles (750 ml each) white Vinho Verde
  • 1 cup Rosemary Syrup
  • 1 seedless cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup mint leaves
  • Ice cubes, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. Using a knife, peel the oranges, removing all of the white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections into the bowl.
  2. In a punch bowl, mix the wine and Rosemary Syrup. Add the oranges and cucumber slices; let stand for 1 hour. Garnish with the mint and serve over ice.
