What’s in Apple Cider Punch

This recipe tastes great with or without alcohol, so you can make it to fit the occasion. Talk about a crowd pleaser!

  • Apple: Use your favorite apple – just be sure to slice it.
  • Apple Cider: Buy it at the store or make your own! I have recipes for both Crockpot apple cider AND Instant Pot apple cider.
  • Pear Nectar: You should be able to find this in the juice aisle of your local grocery store. It adds the best fruity touch of sweetness!
  • Ginger Ale: This adds a delicious sparkling element.
  • Apple Pie Vodka: If you can’t find this, no worries! Just swap it with caramel vodka.

PRO TIP: If you’re looking to liven up your holiday this year, just splash a little Apple Pie Vodka in your glass. You guys…this vodka. I am NOT a shot girl, but that vodka is AMAZING.

What type of apple works best in this drink?

You can use pretty much any type of apple in this drink. Depending on your preferences, here are some ideas:

  • Tart: Granny Smith, Macintosh, Pink Lady apples
  • In-between: Gala, Jazz, Delicious
  • Sweet: Honeycrisp, Fuji, Envy

Can I make this drink in advance?

Sure thing! Mix most of the ingredients and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. Just save the ice and ginger ale for serving time. The ice will melt and water down the drink, and the ginger ale could lose its fizz.

Do I need to cook the apples?

Nope! Although it’s an apple pie inspired drink, this recipe calls for fresh apples only.

Where can I buy apple pie vodka?

Check your local liquor store! If you’re struggling to find some, consider making my favorite apple pie vodka recipe (it’s super quick and easy). You can always replace it with caramel vodka if needed.

Serving Suggestions

If you’re serving this apple pie drink at parties or when you have a few friends around, then you’ll need some nibbles to serve it with.

Here are some recipes that would go perfectly:

  • Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple
  • Sheet Pan Apple Crisp
  • Fried Apples
  • Mini Cheese Ball Bites

I love Apple cider and this recipe looks great for Thanksgiving dinner at my place. However, I would like to replace Apple Pie Vodka with Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel. Reason being, it’s completely botanical and natural and my family loves mixing that sorrel with different types of ingredients like Apple cider/ ginger ale/ fresh mango juice. :)Apple Pie Drink (Apple Cider Punch) Recipe - The Cookie Rookie® (11)
