Champagne Punch

(Photo by Ned Drummond)

This is a reasonably sized punch for a small gathering, and a really good use of sparkling wine and spirits to produce a strong and balanced communal drink. The photo I used is a half portion, so it doesn't fill the bowl completely. But it was the perfect amount for three big drinkers. The full-size punch makes 15 servings.
  • 1 cup cognac (Mewkow used)
  • 1 cup cherry liqueur (Cherry Heering used)
  • 1 cup triple sec (Cointreau used)
  • 1/4 cup sugar syrup
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 bottles (750 ml.) Champagne or sparkling wine (Korbel brut used)
Combine juice, spirits and sugar in a bowl and refrigerate up to two hours before serving. Fill with large cakes of ice (snack bags filled with water and frozen beforehand are great.) Add Champagne and stir when ready to serve.
