Let's get started

The day before

  1. Mix the white wine (preferably a dry white wine such as a sauvignon blanc from Koopmanskloof), rum and sugar.

  2. Cut the lemon and orange (preferably organic) into small pieces. Cut the vanilla pod lengthwise. Add these to the wine, rum and sugar. Leave to infuse well overnight.

  3. Put the lemonade (very) cold.

Moment of truth!

  1. When you are ready for your Marquisette, pour the rum and wine mixture through a sieve into glasses. Add the ice-cold lemonade. Settle into the sunshine, santé!
