Christmas Sangria


480ml aged rum
2 bottles fruity red wine
2 oranges, sliced into thin rounds
240ml orange juice
240ml cinnamon syrup, or to taste

Cinnamon syrup:
4-6 cinnamon sticks
400ml water
1 1/2 cups caster sugar

First, make the cinnamon syrup. Boil the cinnamon sticks and water together, then turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes. Cover the pot to prevent too much evaporation. At the end, stir in the caster sugar until dissolved, and let the syrup cool.

To make the sangria, stir all the ingredients together until combined. Chill and top up with ice before serving.
