Apple Orchard Punch.
Today we’re making chilled apple cider punch that tastes like fall in a glass!
Okay and yes, let’s address the elephant in the room: I have an apple cider addiction. Because, how can you not?
Guys, I think I have eight apple cider cocktails for you this season. Maybe give or take one. I LOVE apple cider so much (p.s. yes homemade is coming soon), I adore that it can be hot or cold, and it just makes the best fall cocktails.
Speaking of, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to bring Thursday cocktails back for the fall. Because here’s the thing: in the summer, I drink mostly chilled rosé or white wine. Maybe some margaritas. Maybe (a gallon of) an aperol spritz.
In the fall though? I want all the sangrias, punches, those warm-you-to-the-core autumn flavors that make me so happy.
Is that how your cocktail hours are going?
Please tell me yes.
See, it’s rare that I will run out and buy a bunch of new bottles for punch or cocktails unless it’s a REALLY good, almost classic, relied on recipe that everyone loves. Like my white apple cider sangria. I want to use the ingredients over and over again!
This is one of those. With some tart pomegranate flavor, a whole cup of aperol (it works incredibly well in fall drinks!) and bubbly, dry prosecco.
THIS IS A KEEPER.
In addition to being all around obsessed with the flavor of this punch, you know, with the whole “it’s almost fall but it’s 90 degrees so let’s make a fun drink!” thing, it’s one that you can totally make ahead of time.
If you’re going to a tailgate party or want to transport this somewhere, combine everything and take it with you. It’s perfect! The bubbles may die down a bit, but it still tastes incredible.
Then, if you find yourself with leftover apple cider, pour it in some popsicle molds! Freeze ’em and serve with the punch. Wisdom, I tell you.

I’m a fellow Aperol girl… will definitely be making these this Fall!!!
I’m with you on every apple cider cocktail, keep them coming! Love this huge vat of cider in your pictures too, nice serving vessel! Thank you
Oh apple cider, the bane of my existence. I love the smell of it. I really want to drink it and be all cute, cozy, fall-girl…BUT it gives me HORRIBLE migraines! One sip and I have a headache, 2 sips and I’m in a darkened room feeling nauseated. So sad.
Any tips for making this non-alcoholic??
Can you please clue me in where to find Pomegranate soda? Is it like La Croix or Spindrift??
Agreed!! Having trouble finding this! Did you have any luck, Jill?
I love, love, LOVE the idea of using popsicles in the drinks!!! I am going to have to use that idea for more summer drinks, as a cool twist instead of ice cubes. Thanks so much! You always have the neatest ideas! :)
