Tiny lady apples make this punch special. They’re smaller than most apples (about the size of a crab-apple but much sweeter). I find them every year at Whole Foods. They’re perfect for making mini candy apples too! Check out this past post for other ways to use them.


Apple Bobbing Punch
you’ll need the following…
• Several lady apples (enough to make a floating garnish)
• 1 bottle of dry white wine
• 8 oz apple vodka (or about 5 mini bottles)
• 1/2 cup triple sec
• 1 cup apple juice
• 3 large apples (cut and thinly sliced)
• 1 cup Sprite
• Strainer

A day prior to serving, Combine wine, apple vodka, apple juice and sliced apples. Place mixture in the fridge overnight. Once you’re ready to serve, remove large apple slices and pour the mixture through a strainer to remove any apple pulp. Transfer to a serving bowl and float your lady apples atop the brew. Before enjoying add sprite. Want a more spirited Halloween touch? Add chunks of dry ice for some boil with your bobbing!

Large apple slices infuse flavor by soaking in wine overnight.



Little lady apples float perfectly in a double old fashioned glass (Use a punch ladle for serving to ensure the fruit bobs in each guest’s glass).
