APPLE PIE PUNCH! The best drink for Thanksgiving and Autumn! Autumn in a glass. Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic versions! - The Cookie Rookie

Last fall I was just getting into blogging (the 1 year anniversary for Cookie Rookie is October 1st!! I can’t believe that) and came up with my Apple Pie Sangria on a whim. It was my first recipe to be somewhat popular…and made Scout famous around the world (just kidding). I was still taking pictures with my cell phone camera, but that didn’t make the recipe any less delicious. It’s still one of my favorites on the site!

If you’re looking to liven up your holiday this year, just splash a little Apple Pie Vodka (sure you can buy some, or you cane make your own (SUPER EASY) with this recipe) in your glass. You guys…this vodka. I am NOT a shot girl…but that vodka is AMAZING. It’s the perfect compliment to the juices in the drink, and you’ll feel like you’re sipping a dessert for sure.

Even without the Apple Pie Vodka, this drink tastes like the pie.  You can serve it hot or cold…so many options! The perfect drink for Autumn! Heck, I’ll probably be making this year round.

Where would one find "pear nectar"? I've checked local grocery stores & can't find it.....
    Becky Hardin
    I found it at a couple grocery stores here in STL. It was in the organic juice section and then another time in the baking section by the canned fruit (go figure). Kern's is a good brand that I've seen several places. I had to ask someone. I have also heard Whole Foods carries it. You could go with regular pear juice or even just leave it out and add some apple juice if you can't find it! Hope that helps!

What is a good substitute if I can't find apple pie vodka? Cinnamon stick vodka or caramel vodka? (I went to every liquor store around me, and one even tried to order it, but it never arrived...)
    Becky Hardin
    You could use either of those vodkas! You could also use regular vodka and add some cinnamon sticks in to the punch. I have used caramel vodka in a different apple pie drink and it was delish! The apple cider has enough spice in it that it would taste great either way :)
      Torrey
      Awesome--thanks so much! I picked up some of the Cinnamon Stick vodka (Smirnoff), so I'm going to give it a shot for my neighbors' Halloween party. :)
        Becky Hardin
        I hope its awesome! You might even do part cinnamon and part regular. Just taste test it. Happy Halloween!!!
Melynda
This punch is delicious and so simple! I doubled the recipe and made it last weekend for a Halloween party. It was a huge hit! I couldn't find pear nectar or apple pie vodka so I used apple juice and salted caramel vodka instead. I can't say enough good things about this punch. I think it will be my staple Halloween bash punch. Thank you for sharing!
    Becky Hardin
    This comment makes me SO happy! I am so glad everyone loved it! Your substitutions sound perfect! I have a lot of people write that they can't find those items, so I'm going to keep your substitutions in mind to tell them! Thanks so much for letting me know, made my day :)
    Meli
    Thank you for this comment. I can't find the vodka or the pear nectar and am subbing the caramel vodka and apple juice and I was worried it might not be good and of course it's for Thanksgiving. No pressure ;) Thank you for posting this. One less thing to worry about!
      Becky Hardin
      Get Meli- If you still have time to shop I saw pear nectar at Whole Foods last weekend. But if not, I'm pretty sure apple juice will be more than fine!! Honestly you probably won't even notice the difference. And I'm a huge caramel vodka lover, so I'm sure that will be tasty too. I hope it works out! Happy Thanksgiving!
      Melynda
      You're welcome! The salted caramel vodka and apple juice paired perfectly Meli! This punch is definitely a crowd favorite. Enjoy :)
        Becky Hardin
        That makes me SO happy to hear! I'll have to try it that way next time! Happy Thanksgiving :)
