Help Me Conjure Up a NYE Punch Featuring Applejack

isadorasmama | Dec 27, 201104:42 PM     1

Heading to a party with drinkers on NYE and rather than standing behind the bar all night, I thought I'd make a punch and let everyone have at it. Applejack first came to mind because it's affordable and seems like the perfect base spirit that most anyone would find enjoyable.

I was thinking some sort of riff on a Jack Rose would be nice, but what other ideas might there be? Here's what I currently have in terms of mixers/additions:

variety of juices
homemade grenadine
homemade cranberry star anise cordial
homemade candied ginger syrup
Angosturas
Fee's (the regular)
Bittermen's Xocolatl Mole
Regan's No. 6

Just so I don't get ideas using Drams and fancy orange shrubbs, I'm in the land of a Liquor Control Board so we're up against store shelves with slim pickins'.
