Ingredients

  • 2l cherry juice
  • peel from 3 oranges , pared with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 thumb-sized red chilli , pierced a few times but left whole
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 10 cloves
  • 6 slices ginger
  • Dracula's fangs sweets (available from sweet shops), to serve, optional

For an alcoholic punch (optional)

  • 200ml vodka , or 25ml per glass

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the cherry juice, orange peel, chilli, cinnamon sticks, cloves and ginger into a large saucepan. Simmer for 5 mins, then turn off the heat. Leave to cool, then chill for at least 4 hrs, or up to 2 days – the longer you leave it the more intense the flavours. If serving to young children, take the chilli out after a few hours.

  • STEP 2

    When you’re ready to serve, pour the juice into a jug. Serve in glass bottles or glasses and pop a straw in each. If you're adding vodka, do so at this stage. Dangle a fangs sweet from each glass.
