Place sugar, spices, brandy, juice and oranges into a medium sized saucepan and simmer for around 10 minutes stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
Remove from heat and cool completely before storing in the fridge at least 8 hours. (This is clearly the non Thermo version, but hey, easier in Thermo. Cook all ingredients 8 min/90ºC/Reverse/speed 1).
Pour into a large jug or punch bowl and add remaining ingredients. We love it cold, add more mineral water to dilute to taste...or go hard with the red wine, but don't blame me for the headache!
Serve cold. Add more mineral water if you prefer a long drink.
