Preparation Time 10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 8)
* 1 orange, quartered, each quarter thinly sliced crossways
* 1 granny smith apple, cored, quartered, each quarter thinly sliced crossways
* 185ml (3/4 cup) Cointreau
* 55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
* 2 x 750ml bottles sparkling shiraz, chilled
* 500ml (2 cups) chilled lemonade
* 1 cup ice cubes, to serve

1. Place the orange, apple, Cointreau and sugar in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill and allow the flavours to develop.
2. Add the sparkling shiraz, lemonade and ice cubes to the fruit mixture. Use a ladle to transfer the sangria to a jug. Pour among 8 serving glasses. Serve immediately.

Notes & tips
* Allow 30 minutes chilling time.
* Sangria means "bleeding" in Spanish.
* This punch-like drink gets its rich ruby colour from the addition of red wine, and uses Cointreau as the base spirit.
