A fun drink can make any gathering more exciting. I like to offer water in addition to some other flavor filled option. I served this apple cider punch at my recent bridal shower but it would also work well for Thanksgiving.
There is only 2 ingredients needed for this and the hardest part of making this is buying the ingredients from the store. First you need apple cider, and it needs to be a good apple cider. You don’t go to the juice isle for the cider. The good kind is going to be refrigerated. I usually find it in the produce section. Another spot I have seen it is where they keep refrigerated juices by the milk.
The other ingredient is good old bottle ginger ale. It adds fizz and flavor. The ginger flavor pairs well with the apple. People loved it at the shower. It was picked over the water. Most of the punch from my drink dispenser was gone where that was was hardly touched. Everyone was making comments on how tasty it was too.
- 1 gallon good quality apple cider (usually found refrigerated in the produce section)
- 1 (2 ltr) bottles of Ginger ale, chilled
- apple slices, optional
In a punch bowl or drink dispenser, combine the apple cider and ginger ale. Add in apple slices if desired. Serve over ice. Makes appox 1 1/2 gallons of punch.
