Festive Punch

Cocktail Recipe

The idea behind the Stone Fruit Holiday Punch is to bring the classic savoury summer holiday accompaniments together with the traditional spices of Christmas pudding. The punch itself is laced with rum, apricot, rosemary, yuzu, cinnamon and raisins to give you an all round cheery hybrid bowl for the family.

*To make large ice cube, simply fill an old 2L ice cream tub with water and freeze.
