  • 1½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • a good pinch ground cloves
  • ½ whole grated nutmeg
  • 2l apple juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 scoops vanilla ice creams
  • dark rum (optional)


  1. Put the cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, apple juice and vanilla extract in a large saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer.

  2. When the apple juice has warmed through, add the vanilla ice cream and whisk vigorously with a balloon whisk until melted and combined with the hot apple juice – the ice cream should make a frothy top on the juice.

  3. Pour a splash of dark rum into the bottom of the adults’ cups and top up with the hot punch. Garnish with Apple crisps (see 'Goes well with').
