There is something charming about a Warm Mulled Wine or Warm Spiced Cocktail in the Winter. 

Enjoy this classic 'Hot Gin Punch' which has made appearances in Charles Dickens novel 'A Christmas Tale' and is perfect for the festive season, however, as it is Winter in the 'Southern Lands', this cocktail is perfect for an Australian winter!  All served in the elegance of the La Rochere Perigord Coupe.


Hot Gin Punch

480ml gin
480ml sweet Madeira wine
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
Peel & juice of 1 lemon
Peel & juice of 1 orange
1 pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced
3 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
Pinch of ground nutmeg


Put all the ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan over a low heat.
Bring to a simmer and cook gently (without boiling) for 30 minutes.
Taste and adjust flavours with more brown sugar or more lemon juice to your tastebuds preferences.
Pour the mixture into a jug or teapot and serve!

For extra pizzazz, garnish with a slice of orange and whole clove.
