Ingredients

  • 1 gala apple
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 cups good apple cider
  • 2 cups ginger ale or 3
  • 1 cup good whiskey or bourbon, optional
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Instructions

  • Core apple and cut into thin slices. Cut orange and lemon into thin slices to create wheels, and discard ends. Put fruit slices and cinnamon sticks into a 2.5-quart pitcher.
  • Pour apple cider, 2 cups ginger ale, lemon juice, and whiskey into the pitcher. (If omitting whiskey, increase ginger ale to 3 cups.) Use a wooden spoon to stir everything together.
  • Refrigerate the punch for at least 1 hour to let the flavors marry together. Pour punch into glasses and garnish with an apple slice.

Notes

This punch can be made with or without alcohol and tastes great either way. 
If you're in a hurry, you can serve this punch immediately, but it tastes better if you let it sit for a bit.
