- 8 oranges
- 1 x 7 cm peeled ginger
- Sparkling wine or champagne
Blend the juice of oranges with piece of fresh, peeled ginger. Half fill four glasses with the juice and top up with sparkling wine or champagne to serve.
Cook's note: for a non-alcoholic drink, replace the sparkling wine or champers with a sugar-syrup or honey and soda/sparkling water mix.
To make, combine 1 litre of water with 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of Woolies' orange blossom honey and stir over a high heat until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 30 minutes.
Take the pot off the stove and let the syrup cool for 30 minutes Strain through a fine-mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth.
Add the sugar syrup to the orange juice and ginger, strain and pour into glasses. Top with sparkling or soda water.
