We’ve taken a classic hot punch or toddy recipe and replaced the heady whiskey or bourbon with the smoothness and welcome honey of our Atlantic Dry Mead. Gently warmed and gently spiced with a splash of apple juice and honey to sweeten it naturally.
1 bottle of Atlantic Dry Mead
250ml apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp pink peppercorns
slices of fresh ginger root about half the size of your thumb
strip of orange peel
strip of lemon peel
2 tsp of honey to taste
Garnish: Orange slice and 1 Tbsp of raisins
Muddle the peels, ginger and peppercorns gently with a muddler or pestle (or even a spoon) to release the flavours.
Add everything except the garnish to a pan and heat gently- don’t boil.
Fill your Toddy glasses with hot water from the kettle and cover the top with a plate to keep warm
Steep spices in the pan for minimum 5 minutes
Empty the hot water from your warmed toddy glasses and add the raisins
Strain the hot punch into the glasses and add the orange slice
