Ingredients

  • 2 litres cherry juice
  • 3 oranges, zest 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
  • vampire fang sweets, 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 over a low- medium heat, then turn off the heat. Leave to cool, then chill for at least 4hrs or up to 48 hrs – 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 ready to serve, pour the infused juice into a jug. Serve in glass bottles or highball glasses. If adding vodka, stir it in at this stage. Dangle a vampire-fang sweet from each glass.
