3 cups club soda

4 ounces peach brandy (1/2 cup)

4 ounces triple sec (1/2 cup)

1 1/2 ounces grenadine (3 tablespoons)

Combine the Riesling, soda, brandy, triple sec and grenadine in a punch bowl and add ice. Float peach slices on top and decorate with mint leaves or mint sprigs. If serving in glasses, put a wedge of sliced peach on each glass, or in the glass, with a mint sprig on the side of the glass.
