1 litro de vino tinto de calidad
dos naranjas de zumo
azúcar o edulcorante líquido
Se mezclan en una jarra el vino y el zumo de las dos naranjas. Se cortan los melocotones en dados y se incorporan. Probamos la mezcla y añadimos azúcar hasta conseguir el sabor que nos agrade. Si tenemos dificultad en disolver el azúcar podemos emplear un edulcorante líquido. Guardamos en la nevera y mantenemos la maceración durante al menos 6 horas.
