Pumpkin Bourbon Halloween Punch

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

You can use a regular punch bowl for this recipe, but that takes away all the fun. Instead, we recommend hollowing out a pumpkin and pouring this festive libation inside. A rich, warming mix of bourbon, apricot brandy, pumpkin purée and homemade pumpkin spice syrup, this festive punch is topped off with sparkling apple cider for a fizzy finish that makes it almost too easy to drink.
