A full list of ingredients can be found at the end of this blog.
- Oranges - In Dutch we also call them Apples of Orange. Being the apples as a real Dutch fruit and Orange the name of our Royal family. Freezing the juice eliminates the need to add extra ice to your cocktail to keep it cold. You can also replace the oranges with tangerines.
- Elderflower syrup - A sweet syrup of elderflower and sugar. And if you've got elderflower in your garden, you can also make this syrup yourself.
- Prosecco - An Italian dry sparkling white wine. It has a fruity and fresh taste. You can also replace it with Cava or Champagne.
Step 1 - Cut the oranges in half and juice them. Remove any seeds.
Step 2 - Pour the juice into a freezer box and put that in the freezer. Stir the juice every half hour with a fork. This keeps it loose and prevents it from getting large (unmanageable) lumps.
Step 3 - Put a tablespoon of elderflower syrup at the bottom of the glass. Scoop some of the orange ice on top.
Step 4 - Fill the glass with the Prosecco. Decorate with slices of oranges and mint (optional).
