This Hot Punch with Sloe Gin and Port by TV presenter and drinks expert Pritesh Mody is a must for chillier days, whether you’re cosying up indoors or wrapping up for a winter stroll. You can serve it in a punch bowl or individual glasses if you’re hosting at home; or strain into flasks if you’re heading out. It’s also delicious cold, as a Collins-style cocktail – simply mix the ingredients and serve in ice-filled highball glasses.
