A friend once told me that the best 1st birthday party they’d been to involved lots of booze, and the worst, lots of 1 year olds!
Cousin Autumn’s 1st birthday party was today and my sis asked me to help out with drinks.
So with very little time and preparation (on my part) I adapted a little recipe I found online and decided that an Autumnal Gin and Apple punch would be a great addition, and very fitting for Autumn’s party.
Recipe below for one Punch bowl…
•1/2 Bottle of Gin (any make)
•3 table spoonfuls of honey
•Juice of 2 limes
• 3 cinnamon sticks
• 2 apples diced into little strips
• Some sprigs of Thyme for garnish
• I let the flavours develop for a good hour and just before people arrived, I added one full carton of apple juice (again any kind would do, but we had a carton of Copella Cloudy Apple handy)
• lastly, the mix was ladelled into a glass to 3/4 full, then topped with a dash of Apple cider (I used cans of Magners
Lots of love,
