Ginger Apple Punch Recipe

Ginger apple punch recipe Ginger Apple Punch Recipe

What’s a party without punch? Sure beers are nice and all, but if you really want to class it up, there’s nothing like a punch bowl to do the trick. The punchbowl is basically the watercooler of any party – the congregation place.

We love this ginger beer and apple cider punch recipe because it goes down smooth and is not too sweet. Best of all, there’s absolutely no measuring involved. When you’re busy getting a bunch of food together that is a godsend. You can even dispatch one of those well-meaning guests to pour everything together for you if they get underfoot.

Christened the “Silver Lining Punch” at our football party, this version of punch is rum based, but the flavor profile also works well with whiskey if that’s what you have on hand.

    This punch was absolutely delicious! Not too sweet, not too boozy, just right. And yes, a little like cream soda. I have a feeling this will be a go to for me.

    I make a white wine sangria that’s really good (with granny apples and pears), but I really don’t consider that punch. One of my Grandmother’s always used to make that Southern Comfort and Sherbert punch, which I loved when I was 12 and sneaking it, but now sounds really gross.
