    The following serving suggestions not included in nutritional analysis:

    1) Red Wine Syrup: The sugar in the original recipe has been reduced from 1 cup to 1/3 cup. If a sweeter syrup is desired, add an additional 1/2 to 2/3 cup sugar.

    2) Simple Syrup can be used instead of Red Wine Syrup: 1 cup sugar and 3 1/2 cups water. Use same preparation as for Red Wine Syrup.
