Apple Ginger Punch Variations!
Frozen Apple Ginger Punch
Early autumn can still be quite warm (or even hot of course, depending on where you live in the world!) so you might want to turn this punch into a frozen slushie!
It’s so easy, simply apple juice and ground ginger in a blender with a generous amount of crushed ice – then blend till smooth.
Serve with a straw, and a slice each of orange and apple – watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the cocktail version too but blitzing liquor of choice with the juice and ginger.
Apple Ginger Party Punch
Want to make this autumn mocktail for a crowd? It’s so easy! Just double, triple, (or whatever multiple) the measurements in the recipe card and you’re good to go!
Make sure you add plenty of ice to your serving receptacle of choice to keep the drink chilled. Add slices of orange and apple in there and a few cinnamon sticks too if you like.
You could also skewer the fruit onto cocktail picks for guests to garnish their glasses.
Speaking of which, place glasses in the bar/serving area along with a filled ice bucket, stirrers, and cocktail decorations if suitable!
