Recipe: Sorghum-Cider Punch
This Sorghum-Cider Punch is the seasonal sipper your holiday party needs. Sweet, cozy, and with just the right amount of spice, this cocktail is dying to be served on chilly a November night. Guests all across the South agree – this cider punch makes them want to party. This big-patch punch is sure to fill your guests up, and plays off of oh-so-Southern flavors.
This punch is an instant hit for busy hostesses if you need a big-batch cocktail to serve, and the bourbon-cider combination will keep you warm through the winter. This Sorghum-Cider Punch is so easy to pull together that it’s ready in just a few minutes. You can throw it into Mama's crystal punch bowl right before your company arrives, and it will still look party-ready because of its pretty garnishes. Start with unfiltered apple juice and add ginger ale, hard cider, bourbon, lemon juice, and of course, sorghum syrup. Throw in a couple of dashes of angostura bitters to top off the mixture before stirring it all together. Instead of buying a heavy bag of ice or using all the ice in your freezer, try using a mini Bundt pan as an ice mold. It will look festive in your punch bowl, and you don’t have to worry about spilling small ice cubes everywhere. Finish by garnishing the punch with orange slices and cinnamon sticks, and your punch is ready to serve! Cheers to our new favorite fall cocktail. Who's up for another round?
