100ml fizzy orange (tango or fanta)    
Directions   Directions
Pour all ingredients into a tall glass (or two depending on how much ice you use) decorate with a slice of orange with a cherry in the middle.  You put the cocktail stick through one side of the orange slice skin, then thread the cherry then through the other side skin so it looks like a sun.   One of our friends thought we had splashed out on an expensive champagne when we served this on Boxing Day.  It’s also nice using flavoured tonic.
