Fabulous Champagne Punch

Recipes / Beverages

From The Boston Globe Magazine, 2004 November 21

Makes about 18 cups.

  • 1 can frozen cranberry juice concentrate
  • 1 can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
  • 1 can frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 bottle Riesling white wine (chilled)
  • 2 bottles champagne (chilled)
  • 1 liter club soda (chilled)
  • Lemon slices for garnish
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves for garnish
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries

In a large punch bowl, combine the cranberry juice, lemonade, and limeade concentrates with the white wine, champagne and club soda. Add ice cubes and garnish with the lemon slices, mint, and fresh cranberries. For a richer punch, instead of ice cubes use frozen cubes made from cranberry juice.

Notes: Haven't tried it yet. I'm not much of a punch drinker or maker, but if I get the urge, this does look better than what we used to make in big trash cans.
