Ashley joined us to make Spooky Apple Punch from Flame Tree Barbecue, Disney’s Animal Kingdom which is a seasonal offering available in September and October.

This drink is very much like a green apple Shirley Temple. The familiar fizzy taste of the lemon-lime soda is beautifully matched to the sour apple syrup. It’s a new twist on an old classic. Adding the sugar-lime rim and Candy-Coated Straw really takes this drink to the next level—but you don’t have to add them if you don’t want to. This drink looks great at a fun Halloween party and you can complete the effect with an official Disney glow cube.


For Punch

1⁄2 small lime

1 teaspoon lime zest

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

11⁄2 ounces Granny Smith apple syrup

8 ounces lemon-lime soda

For Candy-Coated Straw

3 green apple Jolly Rancher candies

3 green apple Life Savers candies, crushed

For Garnish

1 gummy worm

1. To make Punch: Rub rim of a 16-ounce plastic cup or glass with lime. Stir together lime zest and sugar in a shallow dish and dip rim of glass in zest and sugar mix. Twist in sugar to coat rim.

2. Pour apple syrup and lemon-lime soda into the prepared glass.

3. To make Candy-Coated Straw: Microwave Jolly Ranchers on high 1 minute in a small microwave-safe bowl. Pour crushed Life Savers into a shallow dish. Use a butter knife to smooth melted Jolly Ranchers onto the outside of a plastic straw, then quickly roll the straw in Life Savers.

4. To serve: Add ice to Punch to fill glass, then add Candy-Coated Straw and gummy worm. Serve.
