Cranberry & Apple Cider Punch

There’s probably not a huge need amongst the masses for an ice-cold autumnal punch recipe, since usually you want to start drinking hot beverages when the weather cools, but this is a nice refreshing drink that is a great alternative to serve at holiday gatherings. Thanksgiving, even?  My sister, Lacey (that’s her hands pouring the punch below), mixed up a big punch-bowl full for my Lil’ Pumpkin Baby Shower and there was hardly a drop left by the end.  It was so perfect with the pumpkin cupcakes and the entire theme and tasted wonderful!

And if you’re in need of more Thanksgiving recipes, I’ve updated my current favorites on the side bar. I love everything over there and can’t wait to eat some of it soon! Gobble gobble! :D

Cranberry & Apple Cider Punch

Printable recipe
Printable recipe with picture

1/2 gallon apple cider
1 (64 oz) bottle cranberry juice cocktail
1 (2 liter) bottle ginger ale
1/2 gallon orange sherbet

Combine the apple cider, cranberry juice, and ginger ale in a large punch bowl.  Scoop the orange sherbet on top and allow to sit for at least half an hour before serving.  Stir the sherbet into the punch and serve.  Fills 1 large punch bowl.

*Veronica’s notes: I made ice cubes by freezing two batches of the single serving recipe for this punch linked to below, however the ice cubes aren’t really necessary with the orange sherbet, which keeps the punch cold. Also, Dennis added the sherbet and only used half of the half gallon, but I think it would be best with a full half gallon.
