Thanksgiving is just over two weeks away, which means the holidays are rolling in—full steam ahead. It’s officially time to start prepping your holiday cocktail wishlist! Cooler temperatures call for amber liquors to keep you nice and toasty, and festive garnishes are in order to make you feel all “fa la la la la” inside. We thought we’d kick off this holiday season by making a perfect apple punch!
For this cocktail, you’ll need:
- Apple cider
- Honey bourbon
- Sparkling water
Step one: bourbon
First, put an ounce (or two) of honey bourbon into each of your glasses.
Step two: cider
Next, fill your glasses almost to the top with cider, then top off with sparkling water to add a little brightness.
Step three: garnish
Lastly, garnish your cocktail with a sprig of rosemary, a dash of cranberries, and a twist of lemon!
Holiday pro tip
Really spice things up this holiday by freezing lemon rounds, rosemary, and cranberries into an ice ring using a bundt pan. Then, multiply this recipe by pouring an entire bottle of cider and bourbon, and a full cup of sparkling water into a punch bowl. Once frozen, garnish your punch with the festive ice ring—party perfect!
