Claret Cup

Claret Cup

2 tbsp Sugar
1/4 cup Water
2 bottles Red Wine, chilled (25 oz each)
4 oz Cointreau
4 oz Creme de Cassis
2 1/2 oz Port
2 1/2 oz Lemon juice
1 bottle Club Soda, chilled (33 oz)

In a small saucepan, combine the Sugar and Water.  Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Take off heat and allow to cool completely.  In a large Punch Bowl combine everything except the Club Soda.  Stir to combine completely and then cover and refrigerate until very cold.  When cold enough to serve, pour in the Club Soda. Stir gently and garnish the bowl with slices of Lemon and Orange.
