Ingredients

Thickened Fall Harvest Punch cocktail recipe

Recipe Notes: *For non-alcoholic punch, omit whiskey and brandy. Reduce THICK & EASY® Clear Thickener to 1 scoop per serving prepared.

**Honey (Level 3) consistency of THICK & EASY® Juices can be used in place of Nectar (Level 2) consistency. Adjust THICK & EASY® Clear Instant Food & Beverage Thickener for Honey (Level 3) consistency as needed.

How To Prepare

  1. Combine whiskey and brandy with lemon lime soda.
  2. Thicken soda with THICK & EASY® Clear Instant Food & Beverage Thickener per mixing instructions on product canister. (Note: soda will foam when mixing so use a large glass or container for mixing).
  3. Stir together THICK & EASY® Thickened Juices (Cranberry, Apple and Orange).
  4. Add thickened soda mixture to juices; stir well.
  5. Pour into glass and garnish, if desired. Note: Thickened ice cubes (up to 3 per serving) may be added to punch and frozen thickened juice used as garnishes**)

**Frozen Thickened Juice Garnishes & Ice Cubes

  1. Frozen Juice Garnishes: Freeze the appropriate consistency (Level 2 or 3) of THICK & EASY® Thickened Juices using food molds or other shaped containers resembling fruit pieces. Thickened juice may also be poured into a shallow pan and frozen. Just prior to serving, use a melon baller tool to create round shapes or shavings for garnish. Garnish beverages immediately, as frozen garnishes will melt quickly.
  2. Ice cubes: Thicken water to the desired consistency (Level 2 or 3) with THICK & EASY® Clear Instant Food & Beverage Thickener or use pre-thickened THICK & EASY® Thickened Water (Level 2 or 3). Pour into ice cube trays and freeze.
