One of my all-time favorite fall drinks recipes (that transitions really well into the Christmas season) is Harvest Punch. I originally had it at my good friend, Nicole’s when I lived down the street from her for a book club meeting. It was so delicious that I emailed her and asked for the recipe, which she kindly shared. This year for Thanksgiving, I dusted off this crowd-favorite and made a small Lowcountry adjustment to it, which turned out really well. I hope that it becomes a favorite at your events, too! I often put the cider and the whiskey (or schnapps) together ahead of time in the refrigerator and then add the other ingredients about 15 minutes before my guests arrive.
In a drink dispenser, combine:
One half gallon of apple cider (or to taste)
1/3 bottle of Firefly Bourbon Ball Whiskey (or half bottle of butterscotch schnapps)
One bottle of sparking wine
One cinnamon stick
1-2 cups Frozen cranberries
I like to have a bottle of sparkling wine next to the dispenser for guests to top their punch with wine, as well as cut up oranges.
