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.
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.
