|New Years Eve Champagne Punch|
Via A Spicy Perspective
Can you believe another year is almost over? Time flies! How do you plan on ringing in the New Year? Whether it's a quiet night at home or you are hosting a big bash, we have found some great cocktails to toast with. And don't forget to get some sparkling grape juice for the kids! Cheers!
New Years Eve Champagne Punch
2 bottles of Champagne (or another sparkling wine)
1 750 ml bottle of Ruby Port
2 cups fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 cup simple syrup (1:1 ratio)
Grapefruit slices for garnish
Place all ingredients in a large punch bowl filled with ice. Large ice works best here, so that the punch is able to hold without diluting too fast (if you don’t have large ice molds, you could freeze large blocks of ice in Tupperware containers).
Garnish with fresh grapefruit slices.
