Apple Cider Punch

More booze? Why not? Actually, this one can be served in a G-rated format as well, and the adult beverage part is considered optional. That’s the best kind of drinks, in my opinion. They can be shared by everyone.

1/2 gallon(s) Apple Cider, chilled
1 quart(s) White Grape Juice, chilled
1 bottle(s) (750-ml) Sparkling Apple Cider, chilled
8 ounce(s) Orange Juice
8 teaspoon(s) Star Anises
3 large Golden Delicious Apples, sliced crosswise Ice
16 ounce(s) Dark Rum (Optional)

In a punch bowl or large pitcher, combine apple cider, grape juice, sparkling cider, and orange juice. Add star anises and slices from 2 apples.

To serve, fill tumblers with ice. Add 1 ounce rum to each glass, if desired, and top with punch. Garnish each with 1 apple slice.
