  • 1 ounce Orange Juice

  • Fruit (Garnish)

Stir all the ingredients together in a large goblet. Top with soda and garnish with seasonal fruits.

Bishops have been made since the Middle Ages in England and Holland, with many recipes, some with sweet wine and some with dry wine. A well-made bishop is a warming cold-weather treat with a bit of spice that would go nicely with a piece of mince pie.
