Combine the wine, brandy, Cointreau, vodka, port, oranges, apples, cinnamon and lemon peel in a nonreactive container or bowl, and refrigerate for at least four hours. Pour the mixture into a pitcher filled halfway with ice. Add the orange juice and soda water, give a quick stir and serve. Be sure that each glass gets some ice and fruit. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if you’d like.
