180 ml (6 fl oz) vodka (optional)
600 ml (18 fl oz) cloudy apple juice, chilled
1.2 ltr (2 pt) ginger beer, chilled
2 Pink Lady or other dessert apple, quartered,
cored and thinly sliced
ice cubes, to serve
 This warming cocktail is just as nice without the vodka – simply leave it out to enjoy a family- friendly mocktail.
 Combine the vodka (if using), apple juice, ginger beer and half the apple slices in a large jug.
 Add ice to six tumblers and pour over the cocktail. Garnish with the remaining apple slices; serve immediately.
