This year we spent Thanksgiving in Destin with our family from all over. We ended up having 18+ people for dinner! Lots of good food and full bellies for everyone 😉
I have posted our menu below and today I wanted to share the Apple Cider Punch I made (it was a hit and I swear it’s the easiest drink ever!).
Only 2 ingredients are needed for this tasty punch.
- 3 parts Apple Cider (serve chilled and well shaken)
- 1 part Ginger Ale
- Fill a glass (or pitcher) 3/4 of the way with apple cider.
- Fill the rest of the way with ginger ale.
- Serve and I promise everyone will ask for the recipe. It’s so tasty!
Another favorite drink is Ashton’s Warm Caramel Apple Ciders. Simple fill a glass with apple cider, heat for 30 seconds in the microwave, top with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel. Delish and made in a minute!
My little cutie and I in our matching pink aprons on Thanksgiving. She is such a good helper!

Nothing better than eating out on the balcony overlooking the Florida beach.
That is a plate of heaven right there y’all!
