Can anyone suggest a dry red wine? Something sort of generic that you could find in any market or liquor store...
I wouldn't have a clue what to buy but this sounds good!

I'd freeze the fruit instead of using ice.

Jean, you can find a cheap Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon for under $10. Or try a red Rioja for under $10. You can find them at most grocery stores.

April, This looks fantastic. I can not wait to whip an order of this up for my family and friends. I was married to a Cuban for a lot of years and I don't think I came away from that marriage with anything other than a headache after 16 years . Thank you so much for sharing this with everyone.
