Fresh Oranges with Spiced Red Wine Syrup

Fresh Oranges with Spiced Red Wine Syrup

Serving Size:Serves 8


  • 1 750ml bottle dry red wine, like Marc Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1 cup plus 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 8 SweetBurst Navel Oranges



An easy, elegant dessert that is wonderful served with slices of lemon sponge cake, vanilla bean ice cream, or whipped cream spiked with cinnamon and vanilla. Try serving in a martini glass


Bring wine, 1-cup sugar, and cinnamon to boil in large saucepan, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Boil until reduced to 1 cup, about 8 minutes. 

Cool syrup completely. Cover and chill until cold. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.)

Finely grate peel from 2 oranges. Mix peel and 1-tablespoon sugar in small bowl. 

Using a small sharp knife cut off peel and white pith from all oranges. Working over a large bowl, cut between membranes and release segments. 

(Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover orange segments and sugar peel separately and chill.) Divide oranges and juice among 8 bowls. Drizzle syrup over and sprinkle with orange peel.
