2 bottles fruity red wine, such as beaujolais
1 cup orange liqueur, such as grand marnier
1 cup brandied pitted cherries
1 cup sliced fresh peaches or nectarines
1 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup elderflower liqueur, such as st-germain
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 bottle cava
fresh mint or basil sprigs, for garnish

Combine the wine, orange liqueur, cherries, peaches, raspberries, elderflower liqueur and lemon zest in a large-mouth glass bowl or cruet. Stir gently with a wooden spoon, then refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
