Brockmans Warm Winter Mull

What sangria is to summer, this crowd-pleasing punch is to winter.

Ingredients

SERVES 6

  • 150ml Brockmans Gin
  • 1 bottle of Spanish Rioja
  • 100ml simple syrup
  • 100ml orange juice
  • 1 sliced orange
  • 1 handful fresh seasonal berries
  • 6 cinnamon sticks (plus more spices such as star anise or cloves, if you like)
  • 1 teaspoon whole peppercorns (in a sachet)

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and stir to combine. If you like warm, winter spices you can add 5-6 star anise and cloves too.
  2. Set the temperature to high and heat for one hour. Reduce the temperature to low to keep it warm for up to 5 hours. *If you don’t have a slow cooker, simply place ingredients in a heavy-based casserole dish or saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer with the lid on leaving it on a very low heat for about 45 minutes without having a glass until your guests arrive!
  3. To serve, spoon into insulated glassware. Add a few seasonal berries, a stick of cinnamon and a dehydrated or fresh orange or clementine slice.

Ingredients

  • 40ml Brockmans
  • 40ml Cream Sherry
  • 1tsp red currant jelly

Method

  1. Shake all the ingredients over ice cubes and strain onto crushed ice in a highball glass.
