Apple Crumble Cider Punch

This Apple Crumble Cider Punch has the flavours of the classic apple crumble, but in cocktail form! This Pitcher cocktail has winter vibes - think cider, spices and seasonal fruit. However because it’s served icy cold, you can enjoy this with friends at any time of year.

Servings 4


  • 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 30-60 ml bourbon (I used Maker’s Mark)
  • 2 x 330ml cans Zeffer Apple Crumble Infused Cider (or your favourite alcoholic cider)
  • Ice cubes
  • 4-8 leaves fresh pineapple sage or mint
  • 750 ml Ginger beer, to top up (I used Bundaberg)


  1. Add the sliced apple, pomegranate, star anise, cinnamon sticks, bourbon and apple cider to a large pitcher and stir to combine. If you have time, you can place in the fridge for up to 2 hours to allow the flavours to meld together.
  2. When ready to serve, add the ice, herbs if using and then top up with the bottle of ginger beer. Stir once more and taste. You can add a little more bourbon if you like it stronger or stir in a tablespoon of brown or coconut sugar if you want a little more sweetness.
