Ximénez sherry contributing sweetness and a rich Christmas pudding-like flavour to this hot punch.


Created by yours truly to serve live on Christmas Eve 2002 during a broadcast on BBC Radio Four. 'Auntie' is a nickname for the BBC and the drink uses the traditional punch proportions of 1 sour, 2 sweet, 3 strong and 4 weak.
