Apple Harvest Halloween Punch
The apples are crisp and ready to harvest, and it’s also time to put on a costume and have some fun. Why not bring both of your favorite things about the fall season together in one fabulous drink? Lemon adds a tart edge, softened by maple syrup, with ginger and cinnamon to add a spicy kick.
