  • Few slices of lemon
  • 2 small apples, cored and sliced

  1. Pour the apple juice into a large pan, add the lemon, apple slices and cinnamon sticks and heat gently for about 10 mins.
  2. Pour in the ginger ale and heat for a further 3-4 mins, then serve the hot punch in heatproof glasses or tumblers.

Top tips for making Witches' brew punch

This Halloween cocktail is best served as soon as it's warmed for the best flavour and taste, however, you can make it in advance and then keep it on the lowest heat - like you would with mulled wine.
