*Y'all know I always like to serve a signature beverage at my parties. A signature beverage should complement the menu, theme, and season. Here's the recipe for my signature beverage:
Recipe for my signature drink, Apple Punch
1 - 1/2 quart of apple juice
2 cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
1 - 1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 pints orange juice
28 oz. ginger ale
Simmer the apple juice in a kettle with all the spices. Strain the spiced apple juice and mix with the remaining fruit juices. Add the ginger ale and ice. Served chilled and enjoy the taste of the season!
Hope you are getting your holiday started with a little entertaining...Southern style! Thanks again to Miss Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday...y'all stop in for a visit with her.
