By: Liz Gray

Ingredients

  • 2 honeycrisp apples
  • 2 pears
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 3 cups apple cider
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 bottles pinot grigio, chilled
  • 1 pumpkin, for serving (optional)

Directions

Thinly slice apples, pears and oranges lengthwise, then place in a large bowl. Coat with lemon juice to prevent browning. Add honey, brown sugar, bourbon, apple cider and pumpkin pie spice, stirring gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours, or overnight. Top with chilled pinot grigio and serve.

For Serving

Serve in a pitcher or punch bowl, or give the punch extra Halloween flavor by serving inside a Jack O' Lantern. Cut a circle in the top of a large pumpkin, then completely remove seeds and pulp. Fill with fruit and punch, then enjoy!

Tip: Decorate the exterior of pumpkin using a silver paint marker. Here, the cocktail name lets guests know what's inside.
