Sherry orange brûlée recipe

This golden cocktail may look super impressive, but it's actually really easy to make. Simply combine orange juice, sweet sherry and aromatic Cointreau in a jug with ice and serve! For a simple garnish, cook oranges slices in a pan until caramelised and add to each glass – not only does this look super elegant, but it also gives gorgeous brûlée flavour. See method

  1. Slice off and discard the ends of the orange, then cut into 6 x 3.5mm-thick slices. Toss in the sugar to coat both sides fully.
  2. Heat a large, nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat. When hot, add the orange slices. Cook for 2-3 mins each side until darkened and caramelised. Set aside on a piece of nonstick baking paper and leave to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the orange juice, sherry and Cointreau in a jug. Fill 6 short glasses with ice and divide the mixture between the glasses. Place the cooled brûléed orange slice on top to garnish.
