Bloody Apple Cranberry Cocktails

Hiccup. I think this punch has been thoroughly tested for Halloween.

For a kid friendly version, ditch the alcohol and add an extra bottle of chilled sparkling apple cider.


Ingredients

1 (12 FL OZ) container frozen 100% cranberry juice, thawed
1 (25.4 FL OZ) bottle Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider, chilled
1 cup apple flavored vodka
1/2 cup cranberry schnapps
4 cups very cold water, or ice water mix (For more intense cranberry flavor in the non alcoholic punch, use less water.)


Instructions

Stir everything together in a pitcher and serve.

Note: This cocktail recipe makes for a comforting warm drink on a cold day. Pour punch into a Crockpot, warm on the stove in a large pot, or microwave individual portions. Serve in mugs and garnish each with a cinnamon stick if desired.

Oh yeah! I can make this without alcohol or soda just for myself. I don't drink, so this is perfect. I love the glasses!

What a gorgeous photo. I've bookmarked this for the next time we have a gang for drinks. I love to serve something just a little different and this certainly is.

Thank-you ladies!

I bought the cups and platter on clearance at Rite Aid yesterday Patricia. I also saw them at a grocery store, so I think they might be a pretty common find this year.
