At her bar Myrtle's Punch House in Cincinnati, Molly Wellman serves a mix of new and historical punches. Dating to the 1800s, this recipe is easy, breezy, pink and fruity--and still completely sophisticated.
lemon, juiced (3 to 4 tablespoons)
raspberry syrup or grenadine
orange, thinly sliced, plus extra for garnish if desired
slices of pineapple
- In a punch bowl, dissolve sugar in the lemon juice. Add the chilled champagne, the raspberry syrup and the orange and pineapple slices. Stir, add extra-large ice cubes if desired, then serve immediately, garnishing cups with additional fruit if desired.
- Shopping Tip Raspberry beverage syrup is available in the coffee aisle. (Torani is one common brand.) You can also make your own or substitute grenadine.
