Prep Time 5 minutes

Servings 1 cocktail
Calories 135kcal


  • 10 cl fruity & spicy red wine eg a Côtes du Rhône
  • 10 cl orange juice without pulp
  • 1 slice of orange
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon rod
  • 5 cl soda water

For decorating

  • 0.5 slice of orange
  • whole cloves


Preparation - 5 minutes

  • Start by prepping the clove-infused orange by sticking the cloves into the skin of the orange slice. If making multiple serving it's easier to stick them into the orange while it's whole and then slicing it.
  • Pour the wine and orange juice into a glass (or a bowl or jug if making multiple servings). Split the orange slice into four pieces and place them in the glass with the wine and orange juice. Add a cinnamon rod and let sit to infuse for at least 30 minutes.

Serving - 1 minute

  • Add in the soda water and decorate the glass with half an orange slice stuffed with cloves.


  • Use a fruity & spicy red wine for this - I like a Côtes du Rhône like Les Dauphins (72458)
  • This cocktail works well to make for a group - just adjust the number of servings, make it in a punch bowl and top up the individual glasses with soda water just before serving
