Frankenstein Punch for Siúcra x Catherine

Recipes

This is such fun, watch the grapes, cranberries and blueberries bounce up and down in a very creepy manner!!

 

To frost the glasses –

4 tbsp Siucra granulated sugar
Shallow bowl of water

For the sugar syrup – 

  • 200g Siucra caster sugar
  • 300ml water
  • 10 pieces of fresh orange peel  
  • 100g blueberries
  • 20 green grapes
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • 10 sprigs of mint
  • 3 small to medium apples, peeled, halved & carve a monster face on the curved side of the apple
  • 2 litres sparkling water

To frost the glass – dip the rim of the glasses into a shallow bowl of water and then into a plate of Siucra granulated sugar. Leave these to set/ dry for 10 minutes.

To make the sugar syrup – pour the Siucra 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.

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.
Give it a gently stir and then pour in the sparkling water.
You’ll need a ladle to stir into the glasses.
