Apple Cider Punch

In the 7 1/2 years I’ve done this blog, I’d apparently only shared one drink. Let’s bring it up to 2!

I was recently contacted by Moscow Muled, a company that makes copper mugs. They’re hoping that people can realize that not only are copper mugs good for Moscow mules (…I don’t drink, someone had to tell me what those even are), but they’re good for other drinks as well, and they sent me two mugs to help that cause. I originally thought I’d make a warm cider drink, but since I’d been told that the ginger beer in a Moscow mule, as it passes the copper rim of the mug, has an exciting zip to it (plus it was 88 degrees, IN OCTOBER), I went for a chilled, ginger beer-containing drink instead!

This one’s simple, with just bowl, and barely 2 steps. It’s very fall-y, but definitely not in a mulled cider way. The copper mugs from Moscow Muled look nice, stay chilled, and are a good shape to hold, so if you’re into Moscow mules, or just want some nice looking mugs on hooks in your kitchen, these are a very solid choice!

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 12 ounce bottles ginger beer
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • ice
  • rum (optional)

Combine the apple cider and orange juice in a pitcher or large bowl. Add the ginger beer and sliced fruit when ready to serve, and serve with ice. Add rum to taste, if desired.

This is actually a half recipe – gotta buy myself a nice looking pitcher next!
