Think drinks: Pitcher drinks like this wine cooler mean less last-minute measuring and mixing for the host. You can also serve it in a punch bowl. In addition to the cooler, Marcus recommends a dry sparkling wine, beer, and a variety of citrusy soft drinks with this menu.

Fresh Citrus Wine Cooler

“This is super-refreshing any time of year,” says Marcus, “and I like that you can make it more or less alcoholic, just by adjusting the amount of wine you use.” Experiment with the proportions to suit your taste. You can’t go wrong.

Serves 8
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 2 limes
3 tablespoons sugar
2-inch piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
8 fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped
3 cups dry white wine
1 orange, sliced
1 lime, sliced
Crushed ice

Chill tall glasses. In a small saucepan, combine the orange, lemon, and lime juices and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the sugar and ginger, stir briefly to dissolve the sugar, and remove from the heat. Let cool completely.

Pour into a large pitcher and add the mint, the wine, and the orange and lime slices. Fill the glasses with crushed ice, pour in the cooler, and serve immediately.
