Hot Punch Recipe

punchThis punch recipe is very good for a cold night. It was given to me by my English teacher Mrs Smethurst. I have retained and used it ever since. Never fails to leave a smile on all who drink it.  Enjoy!

Measure 1/4 pint of blackcurrant cordial into a pan and add 1 pint of water. Thinly peel rind of lemon, take two level teaspoons of brown sugar, 3 cloves, and grating of nutmeg. Heat and bring to the boil slowly. Switch off heat and allow to cool and infuse for 30 minutes. Strain and serve just before serving.

Add halved oranges for extra taste.
