      If you use the Pearson's Square (look it up) you will find that for a
      a litre (quart)of 15-18%abv fruit wine you can add 250ml (1 cup) of
      40%abv neutral spirit to make a 20%abv fortified wine (1 part spirit
      to 4 parts wine). Add additional sugar to taste (it won't ferment at 20%).
