Apple Cider Punch
I made this last night at a Thanksgiving dinner party that I attended. It was a potluck and every guest had to contribute to the Thanksgiving menu. I offered to prepare this beverage because it was easy and I didn't have to do any cooking at home and worry about carrying it and driving it to the party.. I just brought a couple bottles of sparkling wine and used the orange juice, apple cider and lemon juice that were already in the host's fridge and I made the punch at the party right after everybody had arrived. It was such an easy and exotic cocktail recipe that I had pulled off very successful even it was my first trial. It's a fool-proof beverage to make for a big crowd in a couple minutes. It was a big hit and there was no one drop of the punch left in the punch bowl after dinner. I doubled up the recipe and I used organe juice. Next time, I would like to try making it with the cranberry-juice that the recipe also suggested. Click here to see the recipe.
