Notes
I usually make 4 batches of this recipe for parties with around 25 in attendance. I prepare all 4 at once but divide the base into 4 separate containers and store those in the frig. When it’s time for another batch, I pour the base into my pitcher and add the cranberry and pineapple juice, along with the champagne, right before serving.
