Author Notes: Here is a recipe that embraces the bounties of the season, guaranteed delicious and believe it or not, nutritious! This drink includes the juice of tart apples; a potent deliverer of antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium! Tart, green apples have almost twice as much potassium as their red counterparts.Susan E. Levy

Serves: makes 10 – 6 oz servings

  • 7 ½ cups (about 2.5 bottles) sparkling apple juice
