Jerry Thomas' Champagne Punch
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.
Raspberry beverage syrup is available in the coffee aisle. (Torani is one common brand.) You can also make your own or substitute grenadine.
