FIRST Prepare the spiced apple: Add the grated orange rind to the apple juice in a saucepan. Add spices and ginger, and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 mins. Remove from heat and allow to cool slowly. Refrigerate when cold. Sieve to remove spices.
To serve, mix equal parts of the spiced apple juice with the chilled grape (or cranberry) juice and chilled ginger ale.
Alcoholic - use champagne instead of the ginger ale!
