Fall Orchard Punch

There it is!  I said it.  The BEST Fall Punch EVER!!  I was sent a couple bottles of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple and Cinnful Apple along with a few recipes.  I have already made the Hot & Angry and last weekend I made Fall Orchard Punch.  OH MY GOODNESS, this is a perfect punch for Thanksgiving.....or a Fall/Autumn party.....or whenever really.

There are two parts to creating this punch.  The first part is to make the Cranberry Syrup.  I made it a day ahead so that I knew it would be ready in time.  (Wait, I didn't tell you that my youngest turned 6 and we had her family party on Saturday.  I decided to make this punch and to see how everyone liked it.)  

First you pour cranberry juice into a pot.

Next you add sugar to the pot and cook on low until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Let it sit and cool completely.  I then transferred it to a tupperware and stuck it in the fridge over night.

When you are ready to make this punch, it literally only takes a few minutes and is really really easy to make.  I whipped it together in a punch bowl and put a few Ice Balls inside to keep it cool.  We poured it into short glasses over ice because it tasted even better the colder it was.

This punch was such a hit, I'm making it again this weekend for the holiday!  Which reminds me that when I went to the store today......that I forgot to get more of the short plastic glasses for the punch........dang it!



Here is the recipe for Fall Orchard Punch:

Fall Orchard Punch
Ingredients
  • 4 bottles Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
  • 8 ounces white rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces Grand Marnier
  • 3 ounces lemon juice
  • 6 ounces cranberry syrup**
  • 3 ounces raspberry puree
Instructions
In a punch bowl add all of the ingredients above except for the Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. Stir everything in the bowl together. Top off with the Angry Orchard Crisp Apple.

**To make the cranberry syrup:
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup granulated sugar

In a pot, pour in the cranberry juice and sugar. Heat on low until the sugar is all dissolved. Set aside and let it completely cool. Once cooled, pour in a tupperware and stick it in the fridge to chill overnight.

Once our first batch ran out we had no more of the Angry Orchard Crisp Apple.  Luckily a friend had brought the green Angry Orchard cider so we made the second batch with that.  Although it's totally doable, the Crisp one was better because it wasn't as sweet at the green one.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  This year my parents Anniversary lands on Thanksgiving, so we have 2 reasons to celebrate!

Cheers!

I was sent these bottles of Angry Orchard free of charge.  I was not paid in any way for this post.  All opinions are my own and always will be.
