Try out this fun and flavourful punch that is super easy to make and doesn’t even require a shaker. It’s made with both gin and whisky to pack a real boozy punch and balanced out with the freshness of apples, oranges, and cinnamon sticks to bring loads of fall-inspired flavours into this easy seasonal sipper.
Nothing says Fall like the warm flavours of apple and cinnamon, so we thought it was time to add to our drink repertoire with a seasonal bevy. We’re switching it up from our usual shaker-style cocktails and making a big batch punch that is perfect for sharing with friends and family (or not, totally up to you). This Boozy Apple Cinnamon Fall Punch is smooth and flavourful, with refreshing flavours and warm spice and it couldn’t be easier to make!
When we say it doesn’t get much easier than this, we really mean it! This punch comes together by simply slicing up some fruits and adding all of the ingredients to a large pitcher. Mix it up well and it’s ready to drink or chill for a few hours to allow all of the flavours to really infuse. Either way, this beverage really packs a punch 😉 in the flavour department.
We chose gin for the base of this drink which, if you know us, isn’t too surprising because we’ve been on quite the gin kick lately. Of course, we opted for Collective Arts Artisanal Dry Gin because it’s super smooth and we love supporting local, small-batch products. You’ll notice we put cinnamon sticks directly into the punch to really embody the cozy and warm vibes of fall, but to amp it up even more, Fireball cinnamon whisky was THE move. Yes, we combined gin and whisky for a little extra something something and it was definitely the right decision. The super cinnamon-y flavours in this drink paired with fresh apple cider and the crisp and refreshing addition of apple slices make this taste like apple pie in a glass. Sliced orange gives it the perfect hint of citrus and fully completes this punch.
Besides being absolutely packed with warm flavours that are totally typical of Fall, this drink is perfect for both autumn days and nights. Afternoons are still bright and mild enough to crave a punch and hold on to those summer feelings, and the cozy, warm flavours in this recipe make it totally acceptable to drink this all night long too! If you don’t end up finishing the whole pitcher (highly unlikely, at least for us), you can store it in the fridge and enjoy it whenever you’re ready for a drink. We hope you love this Boozy Apple Cinnamon Fall Punch and that it becomes your go-to Fall drink like it has for us!
