5 Festive Punch Recipes for Fall

We’re celebrating September’s cooling temperatures by showcasing seasonal fruits in some tasty beverages. Mix up one of these recipes at your next get-together and raise a glass to autumn.

This bright, sweet drink only sounds gory — with a frozen berry puree and sparkling water, it makes a sweet Halloween party treat for kids and adults.

Cranberry and pomegranate juices give this fizzy beverage a gorgeous plum color that’s perfect for fall. Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds for a fancy touch.

Cloves, cardamom and star anise lend their festive flavors to hard apple cider in this seasonal cocktail. Served chilled, it’s a nice variation on traditional hot cider.

Refreshing spearmint pairs well with ginger ale — and a splash of bourbon, if you’re so inclined. Treat guests to this drink in the transitional months of September and October there’s no need to wait for the holidays.

Drop red and green grapes into glasses when serving this fall beverage. Try substituting sparkling wine for sparkling water at a cocktail party.

Twine & Braids

I started Twine & Braids as a creative outlet to share recipes and DIYs, lifestyle tips and the like. But before all that my lifelong passion has always been wellness. My full-time career is within the health and wellness field and you may notice me make some healthy swaps in my recipes here and there. When it comes to the latest and greatest in wellness trends I’ve always been the first in line to give it a try. Powered green juice? Yep. Organic, plant-based protein? Duh. Matcha everything? Sure! Oh, and have you heard maple water is the new coconut water? So when I had the chance to try CideRoad, an organic switchel, I was all about it!

Having never heard of switchel I first checked the label. I was sold by the organic, whole food ingredients like apple cider vinegar, pure maple syrup and ginger. I love ginger and CideRoad definitely gives you that kick. I’ve always wanted to be one of those people who could take a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning and go on with my day but I can’t get over the taste. CideRoad gives me all the health benefits of apple cider vinegar balancing your bodies pH, detoxifying the body, etc., but tastes great.

Since I can’t leave “well” enough alone [see my green juice cocktail here] my first thought after tasting the Maple and Ginger flavor, was to use it in a cocktail. CideRoad’s Original switchel just screams autumn to me. Mixing it up with some rum, hard cider, lemon and a little cinnamon creates the perfect spiced autumn punch. You also can’t beat that fact that switchel is jammed packed with ingredients to help fight your morning hangover, so I’d consider keeping one or two in the fridge, ya know for emergencies.


Makes 1 cocktail. Directions below to increase for a larger batch!

  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 4 ounces Original CideRoad
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • about 1/2 bottle of hard cider
  • 1 apple slice
  • cinnamon sugar for the rim
  • pomegranate seeds and/or cranberries
  • cinnamon stick

To prepare your glass rub the apple slice around the rim to wet and coat with the cinnamon sugar. Into an ice filled shaker add the rum, Original CideRoad, and lemon juice. Shake and pour over ice into your prepared glass. Top with hard cider. Garnish with pomegranate seeds, cranberries and a cinnamon stick.

This recipe makes one cocktail but can easily be made into a large batch. Making for a dinner party? Multiply the above recipe by the number of guests – plus a few extra! Pour the rum, Original CideRoad, lemon juice and hard cider into a large punch bowl or pitcher filled with ice. Stir and garnish with a few cinnamon sticks, pomegranate seeds and cranberries. The longer the cinnamon sticks and berries soak the better!

Fall Spiced Cider Punch Recipe

Alea&rsquos note: Derrick, his wife Tatanisha and I had an opportunity to taste test apple cider courtesy of Gowan Orchards at the International Food Bloggers Conference. We were both inspired by the delicious flavors. You can see us having fun with one of Gowan Orchard&rsquos hard ciders here.

  • 32 ounces apple cider
  • 32 ounces raspberry apple juice
  • 1/2 cup tea and lemonade mix
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 red pear
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • 2 Honeycrisp apples
  • 1 tablespoon apple pie spice (how to make apple pie spice mix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. In a large punch bowl add fruit juices, tea and lemonade mix, water, spices, and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Prepare fruit using a large mandolin slicer.
  3. Add fruit to the punch and place punch bowl into the refrigerator overnight. Although the punch can be served immediately, allowing the flavors to mend overnight intensifies the flavor.
  4. Add your Apple, Pear, and Lemon Ice Ring.

Make your life easier by placing cups near your punch bowl and allowing your guests to serve themselves throughout the party.

Hot Toddy

A delicious Scottish hot toddy - the star anise is optional. Picture:


• 35ml of blended Scotch whisky (we prefer using a non-peated premium blend but peated whisky works just as well and gives the drink an entirely different taste, so it can be fun to try)

• 100ml – 200ml of boiling water

• a handled glass (as shown in main picture)

"This drink is perfect for the holidays. The combination of pomegranate, lemon and maple syrup is out of this world."

Our FALL PUNCH RECIPE offers a refreshing seasonal change from mixed cocktail recipes. As with all alcoholic beverages, we remind you that you must be of legal drinking age to enjoy. Please enjoy responsibly and never, ever drink and drive.

Here are a few things to remember:


We used two alcoholic beverages to craft this flavourful punch: a spiced rye whisky and a sparkling apple wine. Feel free to substitute a sparkling wine like Prosecco if your local spirits purveyor doesn’t carry apple wine.


Apple is prominent in this punch, with both apple slices and apple cider contributing to its refreshing flavour. If you see mulled apple cider at your local farm stand, grocery or supermarket, try using that. It will increase the spiced element and make this beverage extra memorable.


We recommend you make this FALL PUNCH RECIPE an hour or two before serving. It will give the whole spices a chance to soften and infuse the liquid with their spiciness.

This recipe is made even more attractive when presented from a 1-gallon beverage dispenser as suggested. Place it out on a beverage station and allow guests to help themselves responsibly. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving and other holidays in the fall and winter!

We think every good punch deserves to be paired with equally delicious snacks, right? Serve it with our BLUE CHEESE PECAN SHORTBREADS, this tasty PUMPKIN HUMMUS that we serve with our PITA CRISPS, our FLATBREAD RECIPE and AJVAR, a sensational red pepper dip.

Sparkling Autumn Spiced Sangria

It’s that time of year when the baby sitter has homecoming dances and other things that are keeping her occupied and unable to come watch the babies. While we totally understand that she has her own life, we miss our date nights. So we have definitely become experts at finding ways to have little date nights in together!

Last weekend we decided to go all out and dine al fresco on the front porch with some homemade Sparkling Autumn Spiced Sangria and a BON APPÉTIT Pepperoni & Pesto Pizza. It was the perfect pairing.

We have a gorgeous big front porch that overlooks a park and sometimes we forget to take advantage of it. Having an easy delicious dinner and watching the sunset over the park was exactly what we needed to regroup after a long week!

This is my final recipe for 2015 partnering with BON APPÉTIT and I just can’t say enough good things about their frozen pizzas! I normally don’t love frozen pizzas because the ingredients don’t taste very fresh and I really like a good thin crust. However, BON APPÉTIT has totally changed my mind!

The BON APPÉTIT Pepperoni & Pesto Pizza has a delicious flavor with a hint of spice all on its own, but I like to dress it up a little with some grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil from my herb garden. Jorge thought I had made it myself!

As for this Sparkling Autumn Spiced Sangria, you can use any fruit you have on hand and it’s a breeze to whip up. I love making this for company because I can make a big batch up to 24 hours ahead of time and it is always a big crowd pleaser.

If you like your sangria a little sweeter, you can always add a little simple syrup to the recipe. For the best flavor, try to find some fresh apple cider to really give it a good apple punch!
