Alcohol-Free Sparkling Pear Punch

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time:

cups

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 - 5 Anjou pears, cubed
  • 1 lemon's worth of juice
  • 32 oz pear nectar
  • 2 1/2 cups spiced apple cider (Check your produce department, that's where they keep the fresh stuff!)
  • 2 liters ginger ale
  • cinnamon sticks (For garnish)

Instructions

Pour all ingredients except ginger ale into a large container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour but up to 1 day, to allow the flavors to infuse.

When ready to serve, fill a glass 1/2 to 2/3 with the infusion, then top it off with ginger ale.

Notes

This light and bubbly drink pairs perfectly with cured meats and cheeses, making it perfect to serve with appetizers or to lighten medium heavy meals like our Winter Ratatouille or Zuppa Toscana.
