Orange and cranberry champagne sangria

0

OK, SO some people will do anything to come up with a new funky name mixing two words together like Cronut.

Anyway, here’s one that can only be a good thing …. Crangria! Have a think for a few moments and work it out.

Yes, we’re talking about a fruity take on everyone’s favourite Spanish summer drink and so easy to make.

Orange-cranberry champagne sangria is fruity, zingy, light, fresh and fizzy and it’s made with fresh ingredients.

Can you think of a better way to ring in the start of summer.

INGREDIENTS

1 750-ml bottle of rose champagne
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup cranberry and apple juice
2 juicy oranges
1 lemon
1/3 cup fresh cranberries
Ice

DIRECTIONS

Slice up the juicy oranges and the lemon. Try using the smaller blood oranges as an alternative because they are very juicy so they add more to the mix.

Add the orange and lemon slices, cranberries and sugar to a pitcher. Add in the cranberry juice.

Add in the champagne. Place the pitcher in the fridge for an hour to chill.

When ready to serve, mix until all sugar is dissolved. Do this after it chills to reduce stirring and preserve those precious bubbles. Most of the sugar will dissolve on its own.

Serve over ice with orange slices and cranberries as garnish.
