  2. Fill 6 glasses with ice and pour over the cocktail. To finish, top up each glass with sparkling wine.

Tip: This recipe would have originally used local oranges from Valencia where it was created, but any orange juice will work. To prepare in advance, make the cocktail as above then chill until needed. Just add the fizz when you serve.
