Cider Punch

It’s harvest time!

While we made this as individual servings, it’d be great in a punch bowl. Just keep the liquor and cider ratios the same and add ginger beer to desired strength and then lemon juice to taste.

Cider Punch

  • 2-3 ounces spiced rum
  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • ginger beer
  • squeeze of lemon

Fill a tall glass half way with ice. Pour in liquor and cider. Squeeze in lemon and fill to the top with ginger beer.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    You know my feelings on cider Greg? I’m not always sure I agree with messing with perfection…

  3. Oh goodness! I just got a cozy feeling, totally not in keeping with 7:55 a.m. in my office getting ready to teach a 3-hour class! Love it…

    I can’t help thinking that the drink might be good served warm 😉

  5. I could do that….think I’d break my No Cocktail rule for it!

    Aww, what a very festive glass. Ginger beer isn’t used often enough.

    I’m not familiar with ginger beer – but it sounds delightful and this looks delicious!

  8. I went to a local cidery last weekend for a tasting – this would have fit right on the menu. Sounds great!

    I agree with Mad Dog. I’d like to try this drink warmed a bit. Truth is, each Fall i get hooked on warm apple cider. This would be a very welcome change.

  10. I had a Dark and Stormy last weekend while away on a short trip, and kept thinking how that version could have benefitted from a little spicing up. This cider drink looks way more like what I wanted!

    Sadly we don’t get good apple cider here 🙂

  12. Big Man adores cide, and I adore ginger beer – the perfect combination for us!
