wine stained teeth

This is what I'd rather be doing instead.

Amor, ahora nos vamos a la casa
donde la enredadera sube por las escalas:
antes que llegues tú llegó a tu dormitorio
el verano desnudo con pies de madreselva.

Love, we're going home now,
Where the vines clamber over the trellis:
Even before you, the summer will arrive,
On its honeysuckle feet, in your bedroom.

(Pablo Neruda) 


1 bottle red wine
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar (or more, to taste)
juice of half a grapefruit
juice of half a lime
juice of half an orange
10 ounces seltzer
5 ounces light rum
diced or sliced fruit (oranges, strawberries, pineapple, peaches)
lots of ice
