When Labor Day Weekend concludes and fall unofficially begins, the first thought that races through my mind is “where is the apple cider?!” I realize you can now buy apple cider throughout the year, but I prefer to only consume this delicious beverage when in season. I recently came across a recipe for Apple Cider Punch. With just a few fruity ingredients and a 5 minute prep time, I thought why not give it a try. This turned out to be one of the wisest decisions I have made in the past few months, as the Punch is now my new fall drink of choice.
Below is the recipe I used (cranberry-raspberry, non-alcoholic version to be specific). Let us know your thoughts and what version you like best!
- 6 cups apple cider
- 2 cups orange juice, cranberry-raspberry juice, or orange-mango juice
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 750-ml bottle sparkling white grape juice or sparkling wine
2. For an adult punch, use chilled champagne in place of the sparkling grape juice.
