    Stars in their eyes cocktail

    A fresh non-alcoholic punch. The showstopping giant ice block is made in a cake tin, but regular cubes work too.

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    FOR THE ICE
    Sprigs of winter herbs (such as rosemary and thyme)

    FOR THE PUNCH
    180ml Seedlip Spice
    120ml lime juice
    120ml pear juice
    60ml agave syrup
    300ml Fever-Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale
    Dragon fruit, pears and cinnamon sticks, to garnish

    Method

    1 The day before serving, make the ice. Wash the herbs; put in a Bundt tin and fill with water. Just-boiled or distilled water will result in clearer ice. Freeze overnight, until set.
    2 At least a few hours before your gathering, add all the punch ingredients apart from the ginger ale to a jug, stir to mix and chill.
    3 To serve, pop out the ice cube into a large punch bowl (you may need to run hot water over the underside to release it). Pour over the cocktail, and add the ginger ale. Use a star-shaped biscuit cutter to cut ‘stars’ from the dragonfruit and slice the pears vertically; add with the cinnamon sticks as a garnish. Ladle into glass mugs or tumblers to serve.
