Refreshing and bubbly, this is the cocktail you want to power you through the night without getting too tipsy.

Non-alcoholic option: Drop the brandy and swap wine for sparkling white grape juice.


  • 4 strips orange rind
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 star anise
  • 8 cloves
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ⅓ cup brandy
  • 2 white nectarines
  • 2 cups chilled sparkling mineral water
  • 750 ml bottle-chilled sparkling white wine or moscato
  • Fresh lemon balm or mint leaves

Stir orange rind, cinnamon stick, star anise, cloves, caster sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 5 mins or until thickened slightly.
