Pumpkin Spice Halloween Punch Recipe
Pumpkin pie spice and apple cider lend autumnal flavor to this Halloween take on classic sangria. Serve in a hollowed-out pumpkin for a dramatic presentation.
- 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)
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.
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.
