To frost the glasses
For the sugar syrup
1. 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/ dry for 10 minutes.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Give it a gently stir and then pour in the sparkling water. You’ll need a ladle to stir into the glasses.
