Delicious Champagne Punch Recipe for Christmas


When I make it for New Year’s, instead of using red and green sugar around the rim of the glasses, I use colorful nonpareils instead.


It looks so festive for a New Year’s celebration. If you’re having a big group over to celebrate, make more than one batch because it’s always a huge hit and goes quickly!

You’ll find the recipe for making this punch in this post: Delicious Champagne Punch for Christmas or New Year’s Eve/Day.
