4 peeled and sliced kiwis
1 bag frozen sliced peaches
1 container of strawberries, sliced thin
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white rum
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
2 cups white grape juice
1.5 L Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
Lots of ice
Throw all the fruit in bottom of a large pitcher or punch bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Pour 1/2 cup white rum on top of the fruit and let it sit for about an hour. Pour the big bottle of white wine in there with about 2 cups of white grape juice. Add more sugar if you need it.
Stir, add ice cubes and chill.
Kris hates to ride bikes with me, because I love to do this. Ride with my feet between the handlebars. Downhill. It freaks him out, but I do it anyway. Not sure why it doesn’t scare me,because when I was 10 I fell off my bike while doing this and tore the hell out of my knees. Had to walk a block to get home, and by the time I did my Nike’s were red instead of white. Pleasant, I know.
Every now and then I still get the urge to jump on my bike and find the tallest hill in the neighborhood. I just wish I still had my lime green bike with the banana seat, flower basket, and glittery tassles. That would be perfection.
