An Easy Cocktail

This delicious cocktail is easy to make and flavorful.

JUICES We love the pretty red color of the pomegranate juice and the citrusy flavor that splashes of orange and lime juices adds.

SWEETENER We skip simple syrup in this recipe and add ginger ale for a bit of sweetness and some extra bubbles. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, add some simple syrup or additional gingerale.

CHAMPAGNE Just like when making sangria, choose a champagne or sparkling wine that you would drink but it doesn’t have to be (and honestly shouldn’t be) an expensive one. Any type of sparkling wine will work just fine in this recipe.

To Make This Without Alcohol

Skip the triple sec and add a splash of lemon juice in place. Champagne can be replaced with sparkling apple juice or sparkling grape juice (or even flavored seltzer water).

A Holiday Favorite

The holidays are one of my favorite times of year. While things are a bit different this year, we will still be enjoying our own festivities and appetizer nights with family. Our holidays are filled with goodies and snacks from baked brie to jalapeno poppers and we love to have a special and festive drink to serve alongside them.

How to Make Champagne Punch

  1. Prepare ice cubes/garnish well in advance if desired.
  2. Combine all ingredients (per the recipe below) except champagne and ice in a drink pitcher. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.
  3. To serve, fill a cocktail glass  full with the punch mixture and top with champagne. Garnish with cranberries, pomegranate seeds or mint if desired.

NOTE: The champagne and ice are added when serving to keep the mixture fresh. This means the ice doesn’t melt into the drink and the champagne stays nice and bubbly!

Garnish

To make festive ice cubes, place fruit (cranberries/lime/mint) in the bottom of an ice cube tray. Fill the cubes ⅓ with water and freeze. Once frozen, fill the tray the rest of the way with water and freeze. This keeps the fruit from floating to the top of the ice.

    1. We used 100% pomegranate juice but you can use whatever kind of blend you prefer. I would love to hear how it tastes, Susan!
