The fall season is upon us, but the weather is still warm where I am and in some parts of the country, so I’m blending the 2 worlds with this cooling festive and seasonal, apple mocktail.

It’s perfect timing that I bring you this apple punch recipe today, because today is my birthday and this drink is perfect for celebrating.  As you read this I’ll be in the mountains of Northern California enjoying a little getaway and I may have brought a container of this punch with me so I could enjoy it on my trip.

Fresh apple cider (my fave) is everywhere right now and I love to create a refreshing punch drink. If you like to juice your own apples, that’s perfect too. I like to jazz it up and fizz it up because a fizzy drink quenches my thirst a lot better than a still drink just add sparkling seltzer water. Perfectly quenching on it’s own, but even better when added to fresh juices and fun punch is developed.

This is a non-alcoholic sparkling punch: What I like about this sparkling apple punch is not only is it great for the whole family, it’s perfect for baby showers, kids parties or anytime you want a refreshing, seasonal fall quencher. If you want to make it a grown-up drink, add your liquor of choice. Rum, bourbon or vodka are all delicious options.

If the weather is not so warm where you are, then I have a solution for you, Homemade Hot Apple Cider (picture above). If you have a juicer, it is so good with freshly juiced apples. If you feel like a hot toddy, try Cognac Apple Cider.

You will need a delicious snack to go with these tasty beverages. Why not try apple cider caramel popcorn? They go so well together.
