*To make fresh sour-apple juice, juice 4-5 tart apples (ex: Granny Smith) with the skins intact. If you don’t have a juicer, you can also use a blender. Skin the apples and “liquefy” with ½ cup water per apple.
Chill all ingredients.
When ready to serve, mix all ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher, stirring until all ground ginger is dissolved.
Pour over ice in a regular or stemless wine glass.
