Prep: 10 minutes

Chill: 4 hours


3 cups thinly sliced and halved Fuji or Gala apples (about 3 apples)

2 cups light apple juice drink (like the kind by Trop50 or Mott's), chilled

1 cup cinnamon-flavored whiskey (like the kind by Fireball)

One 750-ml. bottle dry sparkling white wine, chilled

2 cups club soda, chilled

Optional garnish: cinnamon sticks


Place apples in a very large pitcher or serving bowl (at least 2-quart capacity). Add apple juice drink and whiskey, and gently stir.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. (The longer it sits, the more flavorful it gets!) 

Just before serving, add sparkling white wine and club soda, and gently stir.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
