2. Stir ½ cup each of caster sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; boil, uncovered, without stirring, for 3 minutes or until syrup is reduced by half. Cool. Pour syrup into large jug; stir in the freshly squeezed orange juice and 1 cup each Grand Marnier and white rum.

3. Crush 4 cups of ice cubes in the Smeg Dolce & Gabbana Blender until coarsely crushed, add 1 cup orange mixture, pulse to break up remaining ice chunks. Pour into a jug with remaining orange mixture, serve with orange slices and pomegranate arils.

Tip from Fran Abdallaoui, Editor of The Australian Women’s Weekly Food

“Use blood oranges, if available, for a more intense ruby coloured cocktail.”
