Default Can you make Hawaiian Punch wine?

My wife and I were scoping out the juice isle for ideas for our next batch of wine. Were going through all the exotic fruits and my wife spots Hawaiian Punch and asks if I can make wine out of it because it will be perfect for when her sister comes over (her sister literally drinks 1/2 a gallon a day). I look at the ingredients and look at her and say "I don't have an f'n clue."

http://www.hawaiianpunch.com/text_on...fruit_ing.html
CONTAINS: WATER, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP AND 2% OR LESS OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING: CONCENTRATED JUICES (PINEAPPLE, ORANGE, PASSIONFRUIT AND APPLE), PUREES (APRICOT, PAPAYA, GUAVA), CITRIC ACID, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, PECTIN, GUM ACACIA, GUM GHATTI, GLYCEROL ESTER OF WOOD ROSIN, SODIUM HEXAMETAPHOSPHATE, RED #40, BLUE #1, SODIUM BENZOATE AND POTASSIUM SORBATE (PRESERVATIVES) AND ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C).

So can this be fermented?

Thanks in advance!!!

The answer is yes, you can ferment it. But my guess is it's going to taste like jungle juice when it's done because of the high sugar content.

I think it'll ferment, but fermented high fructose corn syrup probably doesn't taste very good.

Pure juices would ferment, and taste better. Then, after it's finished, you could add some campden tablets and potassium sorbate (it's in winemaking/beer shops) and then sweeten with Hawaiian Punch or another fruity and sweet juice.

Why not get these juices (PINEAPPLE, ORANGE, PASSIONFRUIT AND APPLE, PUREES APRICOT, PAPAYA, GUAVA) and make your own.

Hmmm. I would think these preservatives would inhibit fermentation. No?

You'd probably be better off to mix a jug of hawaiian punch and a bit of vodka to preference in a keg and carbonate. Bet that would be good if she likes Hawaiian Punch. I too love the stuff but rarely drink it.

Potassium Sorbate is what you add to wine after fermentation to stop the yeast from reproducing further. In fact, they probably use it as a preservative to prevent wild yeast from growing in it.

Depends on how much sorbate is in there, but it would be tricky to make happen, if it's even possible.
