Can I make this punch recipe ahead of time?

If making ahead, leave out the sparkling cider until the very last minute. Right before serving, stir in cold sparkling cider. This ensures the bubbly zip will be there for your guests! 

Can I make a double batch of this punch?

Definitely. In fact, I recommend it! This big batch cocktail is always the first to disappear every time I serve it!

Can I use a different alcohol to make this vodka punch?

Yes! Try white rum or even a flavored vodka.

Can I use sparkling grape juice instead of sparkling apple cider?

Absolutely! Sparkling grape juice is a delicious substitution for the apple cider.

What can I add for extra effervescence?

Club soda! Stir in a splash of club soda right before pouring into glasses.
