Paranormal Potions for Halloween

If you fancy brewing up a punch or a potion then try using a Rosé Wine or a Clairet for a striking colour! You will need a fruity wine so Domaine de Ricaud Bordeaux Clairet or Clairet de Château des Lisennes are a good choice. If you want to add an extra kick I'd suggest a splash of Cointreau for the Phantom's Punch and one of White Rum for the Spellbinding Sangria!

Spellbinding Sangria

1 bottle of Clairet or Rosé
1 cup cranberry juice
1 punnet of strawberries cut into halves
1 watermelon scooped into balls

Phantoms Punch

1 bottle of Clairet or Rosé
1 orange studded with cloves
1 cinnamon stick
allspice berries
juniper berries

Simmer and serve!
