Say hello to your new summer sip: clerico -- South America's version of sangria. The refreshing cocktail is made from a mix of white wine and fruits. Present this party-pleaser in a glass pitcher, or pour it into lidded jars to bring on a picnic.
To make, combine wine with brandy, lemon juice, and sugar in a 3-quart pitcher. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then add peaches, strawberries, and grapes. Let chill at least 2 hours and up to overnight. Mix in banana just before serving. Pour into glasses filled with ice, and use a spoon to scoop the wine-soaked fruit into each one.
