Ginger Apple Punch

Ginger apple punch recipe Best of: Summer Cocktails

A party can only become more festive with a punch bowl. Making a delicious punch is easier than you would think and one our new favorite new drink is Ginger Apple Punch. Rum or whiskey based, it’s a snap to throw together (no measuring needed!) and never veers into the sickly sweet zone.

Party Palmer

Arnold Palmer with Alcohol Best of: Summer Cocktails

Our go-to summer cocktail is hands down the Party Palmer. This three ingredient drink is easy to make, uses the most basic of ingredients and is so light, refreshing and tasty that you could drink them all day. (Trust us – we have!)

Mango Smoothie

Mango Smoothie recipe Best of: Summer Cocktails

This one is a bit of a cheat as the original Mango Smoothie recipe was alcohol free. But who says you can’t add a bit of rum to this healthy mango, pineapple and coconut milk smoothie? (Trust us again – we have! A shot or two does the job.)

    These all look delish–is 1 p.m. too early for imbibing, ’cause that ginger apple punch is calling my name! I really like the spirits that Midight Moon makes–the cherry moonshine is great and makes a tasty cherry cosmo: the cherry moonshine, triple sec, lime and cranberry juice; shake, strain, garnish and repeat.

    Oh that ginger punch sounds great (and a good lead-in to fall, too)! I have a big, spigoted glass drink dispenser that I love to fill with a lovely puch for summer parties. Slice up some apples and this recipe can come to the party!
