Autumn Punch

I love Fall. I just adore the romantic feel of creeping cooler weather and that exciting harvest time. Pumpkins, apples, cinnamon, falling leaves, and did I mention cooler weather? I already have Halloween and Thanksgiving on the brain! So at your next Fall social gathering, try this Autumn Punch.

Autumn Punch
  • One 750ml bottle dry red wine
  • Two 750ml botlles dry white wine
  • 3 ounces of sweet vermouth
  • 3 ounces of dry vermouth
  • 8 ounces of applejack
  • 8 ounces citrus vodka
  • 8 ounces of cranberry juice
  • 2 ounces of simple syrup or superfine sugar
  • 1 block of ice
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
Combine the liquid ingredients in a punch bowl and stir well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve, place the ice in the bowl. Float the orange and lemon slices on top of the punch.
