SUMMER-FRUIT SANGRIA (Adapted from Martha Stewart Living, August 2008)

2 ripe plums, pitted and cut into wedges
1 large Gala apple, cored and cut into 1/8-inch wedges
1 navel orange, thinly sliced crosswise, larger slices halved
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) raspberries
1 cup raspberry-flavored (or plain) vodka
2 bottles dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc, chilled
1/4 cup superfine sugar
Yields 6 servings.
Combine plums, apple, orange, raspberries and vodka in a nonreactive bowl. Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature for 2 hours. Combine wine and sugar in a pitcher, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add fruit mixture, and stir gently to combine. Serve over ice.

All dishes are cool and refreshing and can be prepared ahead of your guests’ arrival.
