Christmas Drinks- The Driver’s Edition

Here’s an idea for you- non alcoholic mulled punch. I’ve pinched this idea from the family friends whose house we always spend Christmas Eve evening at- it’s perfect for adding a touch of festive cheer on a night when you’re driving or just don’t want to add the alcoholic content.


Add equal parts of ginger beer and cranberry juice to a pan along with a cinnamon stick, sprinkle of cloves and cardamom pods and a couple of star anise if you feel like it. Add a few citrus slices (I used a clementine here) and warm gently on the hob until hot and rather mulled.

Add to a heatproof drinking vessel and enjoy. I particularly enjoy how this also scents your home in a proper, Christmassy fashion.

Oh, and those reindeer, aren’t they cute? I found them on our weekly shop, half price for £3.50 the trio in Sainsbury’s.
