Hallo Andrea,

during the past 10 years we tried a lot of different mixtures. In Germany
the best choice is a cheap red vine and a lot of sugar. When you warm up the
vine you can put more sugar in it. If you want you can add a few drops of
rum to it. In Singapore there will be perhaps a cheap australian Shiraz ?
(but I would prefer to bait myself with Shiraz and not the moths :)).
