Fruit Riesling

I have discovered I can get my husband to consume fruit in two ways. The most obvious way is dessert. The other way is in a drink. He will occasionally drink a smooth as long as he can't see any spinach in it. We have tried telling him that he can't taste them but he is convinced he has superman taste buds and he can taste it. I made this drink and he shared a glass with me. He said he liked it. I love the novelty of fruit in my drinks even if I add it just to water but this German wine is even better.
Fruit Riesling Drink
2 plums, sliced
1 peach, sliced 1 (11.5 oz) frozen white grape raspberry juice
3 cups water

  1. Evenly place the fruit slices in two to four glasses. Set aside.
  2. In a pitcher, combine the juice, water, wine, and ginger ale. Stir.
  3. Pour the drink over the fruit in the glasses. 
  4. Serve immediately or refrigerate the pitcher.
