You should chill this for at least 6 hours before serving so the fruits absorb the alcohol, and become "boozey" as Kristen might describe. This is more powerful than a simple wine cooler, just to advise.

The other advice is on the sugar amount: I suggest using as dry a rose as possible. You can spoon the sugar directly on top of the sliced citrus, peaches, and cherries, then add the wine and spirits. If you like tart, feel free to cut back even more on the amount of sugar. Start with 1/8 cup, especially if the fruits are on the ripe and sweet side.
