    Delish - especially on a SUPER HOT day! Made several batches. Used 1 btl Wine to 1/2 liter Lemon-Lime Soda. Light & fruity sauv blanc was best. For more intensely flavored sauv blancs, added a splash of Midori melon liquor (Malibu coconut rum wd prob work well too). Use of herbs ranged from one to several sprigs (Pineapple Mint, Lemon Verbena & Pineapple Sage great additions/substitutes to Spearmint). Best served well-chilled straight-up, fast melting ice diluted the flavor considerably.
