5 oz. Brockmans Gin
1 bottle of Spanish Rioja
3 ½ oz. simple syrup
3 ½ oz. orange juice
1 sliced orange
1 handful fresh seasonal berries
6 cinnamon sticks (plus more spices such as star anise or cloves, if you like)
1 tsp. whole peppercorns (in a sachet)
Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and stir to combine. Heat on high for one hour. Reduce the temperature to low to keep it warm for up to 5 hours. If you don’t have a slow cooker, simply place ingredients in a heavy-based casserole dish or saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer with the lid on leaving it on a very low heat for about 45 minutes. To serve, spoon into insulated glassware. Garnish with a few seasonal berries, a stick of cinnamon and a dehydrated or fresh orange or clementine slice. If you like warm, winter spices you can add 5-6 star anise and cloves.
