Ingredients

  • 1/2  Cup  dark brown sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  water
  • pink lady apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • large Asian pear, cored and thinly sliced
  • bunch fresh mint, leaves removed and roughly torn
  • bottles light and fruity red wine

Directions

Combine the brown sugar with the water in a small pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the sugar has melted. Remove the pot from the heat. Let it cool to room temperature. Combine the apples, pear, mint, and wine in two pitchers. Add the sugar syrup a little at a time, tasting as you go, until it reaches your desired sweetness. Refrigerate the pitchers for at least 2 hours, and up to 2 days, so that the flavors mingle. Serve over ice.
