2L cherry juice
peel from 3 oranges
1 thumb-sized red chilli, pierced a few times but left whole
3 cinnamon sticks
6 slices ginger
200ml vodka , or 25ml per glass
Tip the cherry juice, orange peel, chilli, cinnamon sticks, cloves and ginger into a large saucepan.
Simmer for 5 mins, then turn off the heat.
Leave to cool, then chill for at least 4 hrs, or up to 2 days – the longer you leave it the more intense the flavours.
If you’re not about the spice, be sure to take the chilli out after a few hours.
When you’re ready to serve, pour the juice into a jug.
Serve in glass bottles or glasses and pop a straw in each. If you’re adding vodka, do so at this stage.

25ml sweet vermouth
slice of orange (for garnish)
Pour the gin, vermouth and Campari into a mixing glass or jug with ice.
Stir well until the outside of the glass feels cold.
Strain into a tumbler and add 1 large ice sphere or some fresh ice, and garnish with an orange slice.
Opt for blood orange to really make the most of spooky szn.
