Poison Apple Punch

One look at this apple cider-based punch's red hue and it's love at first sight. Finish each glass with a wormy apple — a gummy worm and an apple slice, that is — that's sure to delight.

Prep time:
Serving size: 8
Calories per serving: 99

4 thick slices peeled fresh ginger
6 cups apple cider
zest of 1 orange, removed with a vegetable peeler
zest of 1 lemon, removed with a vegetable peeler
1 to 2 cinnamon sticks
3 whole cloves
1 red apple, sliced into 8 wedges, for garnish
gummy worms, for garnish
1 750 ml bottles sparkling cranberry-apple juice

Smash the ginger slices with the flat side of a chef's knife and transfer to a medium saucepan. Add the apple cider, orange zest, lemon zest, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer 10 minutes, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Poke holes in the apple wedges with a chopstick or skewer and insert a gummy worm into each. Add the cranberry-apple juice to the punch. Serve over ice. Garnish with the apples.
