  • 150 g/5 oz caster sugar
  • 100 ml/3 ½ fl oz vodka
  • 50 ml/ fl oz brandy


  • Peel 2 of the oranges and dry the peel either above a radiator or in a very cool oven. Squeeze out the juice and reserve.
  • Roughly chop the other 2 oranges and put these along with the dried peel and all the juice into a large wide mouthed jar.
  • Add the rose wine and pop on a lid. Set aside in a cool cupboard for 3 weeks.
  • Strain out the solids, pour back into the jar and add the sugar, vodka and brandy.
