Apple Annie's Fruit Punch

This punch was delicious, fun and easy to make. It is the perfect punch for summer afternoons and picnics. I was afraid at first that it would be too strong for my guests, but it was very balanced once the sodas were added. The fresh fruit is also a nice touch. In addition to oranges, lemons, apples and raspberries, I added farm fresh blueberries.

The spirit I used here was Laird's Applejack 86. It was strong enough to taste under all the juice, but a real apple brandy and not some jacked cider, weak with no taste.
  • 1 bottle or 1 liter apple brandy (Laird's used)
  • 3 oz. raspberry liqueur (Chambord used)
  • 10 0z orange juice
  • 8 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 liter ginger ale
  • 1 liter sparkling water or lemon lime soda
  • 1 apple sliced thin
  • 1 lemon sliced thin
  • 12-15 raspberries
Combine applejack, raspberry liqueur and fruit juices in a large punch bowl and stir well. Refrigerate for an hour and add a large block of ice before serving. Add the sodas and fruit just before serving and stir again. Serves 20.
