Halloween Punch: Witches’ Brew

Witches' Brew

Peggy Olson from Mad Men once said something along the lines of a cocktail must have at least three ingredients – anything less is just a drink.

This is a cocktail. Well, really it’s a punch: a Halloween punch. And it is one that really couldn’t be easier to make (yay). It’s literally combine into a vat, pour, and garnish. Get excited for the perfect Halloween punch/fall party cocktail. This recipe serves about 8-10 (depending on how high you pour the glasses)! Enjoy!


  • Ice
  • 4 cups of apple cider, chilled
  • 1 1/4 cups of spiced rum (I used Captain Morgan)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 red apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 red apple, cut into thick wedges (for garnish)


Combine the ice, apple cider, rum, lemon juice, and thin slices of apple in a large pitcher or punch bowl.

When serving, garnish with an apple wedge.
