Christmas PunchDifficulty: Easy
Treat your guests to a Christmas punch. It’s a blend of prosecco, sloe gin, Jägermeister and apple juice, together with festive clementine and ginger.
a bunch of frozen red grapes
1L cloudy apple juice
250ml sloe gin
50ml herbal liqueur (we used Jägermeister)
1 ball stem ginger, finely sliced plus 2 tbsp of the syrup
3-4 sprigs of rosemary
1 clementine, finely sliced
- The day before you want to serve, put the grapes in the freezer for around 8-12 hrs or until frozen. Chill the prosecco and apple juice in the fridge.
- When you’re ready to serve, put the frozen grapes and a generous handful of ice in a large 2-3 litre punch bowl and pour all of the remaining ingredients on top. Stir gently to combine, then serve. Sits well for up to 3 hrs before putting the ice in.
Whatever the occasion, this fab recipe is worth a go. Don’t forget to buy the grapes in advance so you can pop them in the freezer the day before serving. If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic drink, this recipe can easily be adapted to create a delicious mocktail – just skip the alcoholic elements in the ingredients list.
