To frost the glasses:
4 tbsp Siúcra Granulated Sugar
Shallow bowl of water
For the sugar syrup:
200g Siúcra Caster Sugar
10 pieces of fresh orange peel
20 green grapes
100g dried cranberries
10 sprigs of mint
3 small to medium apples, peeled, halved and carve a monster face on the curved side of the apple
2 litres sparkling water
- To frost the glass, dip the rim of the glasses into a shallow bowl of water and then into a plate of Siúcra Granulated Sugar. Leave these to set for 10 minutes.
- To make the sugar syrup, pour the Siúcra Caster Sugar and water into a saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat, reduce the heat to low and add the orange pieces. Leave to simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes until a light syrup forms. Take off the heat and allow to cool, leaving the orange peel in the syrup.
- To make the punch, once the syrup is cold, pour this into a large glass bowl, add the blueberries, grapes, cranberries, sprigs of mint and carved apples into the bowl / jug.
- Give it a gentle stir and then pour in the sparkling water. Then use a ladle to stir and serve.
