- 1 cup sugar
• 3 star anise
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 cup fruit wine of your choice
• 2 larger oranges
• 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
• 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts, roasted almonds and pistachios
• fresh mint leaves
Mix sugar, anise, baking soda and 5 tablespoons of water in a medium-sized pan. Mix the ingredients until boiling, until the sugar caramelizes
Remove from the heat and add ¼ cups of fruit wine to the pan with careful movements. Stir and pour and the rest of the wine. Bring to the boil for about 30 seconds, until the sugar is completely melted. Remove the mixture from the heat.
Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, carefully removing the white skin. Cut the oranges into circular eighths, and then cut them in half. Put pieces of oranges on the bottom of a glass, pour caramelized wine over them, cover the wine with a spoonful of Greek yogurt, and add chopped hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios on top. Decorate with mint leaves. Enjoy!
