  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 nectarine, chopped
  • the seeds of 1 pomegranate
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 1/2 bottles of sparkling red wine
  • 2 cups of pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup sugar


Add fruit and cinnamon sticks to a large glass jug. Pour wine, pomegranate juice, brandy and sugar over the top. Scrape vanilla beans out of their pods and add to the mix. Then throw the empty vanilla beans in. Mix with a large spoon to really combine everything.

Place in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving to allow the flavours to infuse. When ready, add plenty of ice into the jug then pour into glasses.
