Original recipe makes 40



From "The Herb Garden Cookbook" (Gulf, $12.95), by Lucinda Hutson. If lemon verbena or lemon balm are unavailable, mint may be substituted. Place oranges, lemon, lime and other seasonal fruits in a large container. Add wine, orange liqueur, brandy and herbs. Cover and refrigerate at least overnight, or up to three days. Fill a clear glass pitcher with sangria, adding more freshly sliced seasonal fruits, frozen peaches and/or blueberries and fresh long-stemmed herbs. (Soft fruits such as fresh strawberries or sliced kiwi also may be added before serving.) Pour into wine glasses with a splash of club soda or champagne, a tiny cluster of grapes and a fresh herb sprig. Makes about 40 4-oz servings. NOTE: Hutson says that if she uses red wine in this punch, she also adds a long stick of cinnamon. From Tuscon area newspapers, 1994, 3rd quarter, courtest Mike Orchekowski. File
