Today the Hollyblue Bakery made an appearance at the Artisan Market at St Edyths, Bristol, today. It was a great day, the cafe we were running was a great hit, raising a massive £146 for charity! Our new Christmas flavoured brownies went down a treat too. We weren’t allowed to sell alcohol so we created Hot Spiced Non-Alcoholic Punch and Hot Spiced Apple in place of Mulled Wine and Spiced Cider. One of my lovely customers asked for the recipe, so I thought I’d post the recipes on here so that you can try it yourselves. Please note that the quanities are large since we were catering for the masses; it can be bottled and stored to re-heat later, or try reducing the recipe by half if you prefer.

Hot Spiced Non-Alcoholic Punch
  • 2 cartons Orange Juice
  • 1 Carton Cranberry Juice
  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Mixed Spice
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Whole Orange spiked with Cloves
Hot Spiced Apple
  • 2 cartons Apple Juice
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Mixed Spice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 Whole Apple spiked with Cloves  (the apple may break up slightly whilst simmering, but this adds to the flavour, I think)

Just chuck the whole lot into a saucepan and bring to the boil; simmer for 10 minutes to fully infuse the flavour. Breathe in the delicious Christmassy aroma and allow to cool very slightly before serving. x
