Holiday Punch

Food writer Karen Anderson has a great recipe for a beverage to serve to guests over the holidays.


Karen's Cracker Jack Apple Punch

A new punch line - a quick recipe for something to welcome your guests with and liven up the party

1 - 1.89L bottle soft apple cider (I love the organic one made by Blush Lane)

1 ½ c Calvados - apple brandy

1 bottle sparkling wine

10 dashes Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Aged or Angostura bitters

Dash cinnamon or grated nutmeg

1 iced ring of apple slices - water and one green and one red apple.

Combine all of the above in a punch bowl.

Note: Make the apple ice ring ahead by cutting a green and red apple in slices and laying them in a circle in the bottom of a Bundt cake pan. Add enough water so they stay in place but don't float. Freeze them in place and then add more water to make a nice sized ring. Pour hot water over the outside of the pan and release the ring into the punch bowl when it is time for your guests to arrive.
