Brockmans Warm Winter Mull

Brockmans Warm Winter Mull

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

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. 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! To serve, spoon into insulated glassware.

GARNISH

Add a few seasonal berries, a stick of cinnamon and a dehydrated  or fresh orange or clementine slice.
