I am loving this festive punch, made with Hendrick’s Gin as created by their British Ambassador, Duncan McRae. It’s a subtle twist on a recipe inspired by Dickens’ David Copperfield.

Mr Micawber’s Favourite, Hot Gin Punch

Hendrick’s Hot Gin Punch


Three full teacups of Hendrick’s Gin

Another three of Madeira wine

Three cloves

Pinch grated nutmeg

Large teaspoon of cinnamon powder

Two teaspoons brown sugar

Six large lemon and orange twists

Small slice orange

One fresh pineapple

Four large spoons honey

Juice of two lemons



Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and place on the heat. Let the concoction simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.  Taste, adding lemon or honey depending on whether you prefer sweet or sour.

When it’s ready, pour into a teapot and serve in teacups or alternatively in a traditional punch bowl.
