Pomegranate Ginger Apple Cider Punch | http://saltandwind.com

The weather drops and I immediately think of punch for any and every opportunity. So, when we got together with Meg of This Mess Is Ours and Kate of ¡HOLA! JALAPEÑO to do a full-on festive tamalada (aka tamale making party), I volunteered to bring the punch! This is an easy punch recipe that's not to sweet, not too boozy, and just right for the Fall, this is made with pomegranate liqueur, ginger juice, apple cider, and sparkling wine.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe pomegranate

    cut into sixths

  • 2 medium clementines

    sliced

  • 5 inches peeled and chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 chilled (750 ml) brut sparkling wine
  • 5 cups chilled unfiltered apple cider
  • 3/4 cup ginger juice
  • 2/3 cup Pama pomegranate liqueur
  • 20 dashes orange bitters
  • ice cubes

    for serving

  • Thinly sliced Golden Delicious, Gala, or Pink Lady apples

    for serving

Instructions

For the ice block: The day before serving the punch, arrange the pomegranate pieces and lime slices in a small J-ello mold or baking pan. Fill with water to cover the fruit then freeze until solid.

For the ginger juice: Place 5 inches of peeled ginger pieces in a food processor or blender and add 3/4 cup of water. Process until smooth then pass through a fine mesh seive and discard solids. 

For the punch: Combine the apple cider, pomegranate liquuer, ginger juice, and sparkling wine in a large pitcher or punch bowl. To unmoled the ice block, dip the pan in hot water until the ice block releases then gently place it in the punch. Serve the cups of punch topped with thinly sliced apples.
