FAQ and Tips
You can, but I strongly recommend apple cider. It has a stronger apple taste which helps the flavor of the punch. If you can't find the apple cider, apple juice will work.
I would make this punch 1 hour ahead of time so the flavors have a chance to blend together and to chill completely. Most of these ingredients will have been in the fridge already, but you want to make sure the punch is completely cold before serving, for flavor reasons.
Well, you could, but the flavor will be different. If you want to change the ginger ale for 7 Up, that may work, but other than that, I would stick to the original recipe. But you can change quantities, meaning add another ½ cup here or ½ there.
