Easy Sparkling Apple Ginger Punch is a naturally sweet family friendly punch to help you celebrate any occasion.
This punch recipe is delicious anytime of year, but is particularly festive in Autumn. Use your favorite apples, but wait until the last minute before slicing to prevent browning.
You can use regular water ice cubes for serving, but it will water down the punch. If you are planning on making a punch bowl full, I recommend making at least one "giant" frozen apple juice cube (ring, circle, etc.) to place in the punch bowl, with some smaller ones on the side for serving.
Variations for Sparkling Apple Ginger Punch
One of the easiest ways to switch up the flavor profile of the punch is to vary the two main liquids: the juice and the sparkling water.
For the juice you can swap the unsweetened apple juice for apple cider, or an apple blend juice such as apple cranberry. Or make your own blend with half apple and half .... pomegranate, grape, cherry, mango, pineapple.
As for the sparkling water you can opt for plain water or flavored. Or use seltzer (plain or flavored) or even some ginger ale for more gingery kick. Or you can make a grown up version with some sparkling wine.
