recipe: cider punch

8C apple cider
1-1/2C bourbon
1/4C triple sec
2” piece of ginger, bruised
3 cinnamon sticks
5 cloves, whole
zest of 1 orange, cut into 1” strips
ice
garnish: apple and orange wedges

Directions:
In a medium pot over medium high heat, combine 4 cups apple cider, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and orange peel. Bring to a boil and remove from heat letting it steep for 30 minutes. Remove spices and refrigerate to chill, at least 1 hour or overnight.

To serve, combine the spiced apple cider with the remaining 4 cups apple cider, bourbon and triple sec in a punch bowl—add ice and garnish.

Adam’s hints:
—this can be made a day in advance without the bourbon and triple sec, just add them right before guests arrive.
—if prepping apples in advance, toss them in lemon juice to prevent browning.
