  • Author: Patricia Beets
  • Yield: 8 cocktails 1x

Description

There is something so perfectly sweet about serving a champagne punch to guests at a party, whether it’s a big bridal bash or a romantic Valentine’s Day fete.

The bonus:

This Sealed With A Kiss Champagne Punch recipe is so easy to make. For this recipe, you can easily control the color and the intensity of the pomegranate flavor by how much you add. If you want the punch to be more pink, than red, use half the amount of juice.

We love this recipe, because it makes a light and refreshing drink that is ideal for celebratory parties, such as baby showers, wedding and bridal showers and anniversaries.

Want to learn how to rim a glass with cocktail sugar for your Valentine’s Day drinks, bridal party cocktail hour or any drink glass? Check out our easy to follow recipe tutorial.

One hint: Be sure to use a thicker, stickier syrup to moisten the glass edge, such as a corn syrup. Why? If you are using a drink garnish with tiny candies, you will need to have something stickier on the glass to make sure the candy hearts really adhere to the glass rim.

Want to make this a mocktail? Use soda water or a lemon-lime soda instead of wine.


Scale

Ingredients

One 750-ml bottle of Champagne (we prefer Prosecco for this)

12 oz Ginger Ale

8 oz Pomegranate Juice

White cocktail rim sugar

Kissing lips edible confetti

Simple syrup or organic corn syrup for moistening the glass rim


Instructions

FIRST, LEARN HOW TO GARNISH YOUR GLASS WITH SUGAR

When you are using a sugar garnish that has tiny edible candy sprinkles (also known as edible confetti sprinkles or edible mini quins), you will need to make sure that your glass rim is very sticky. Simple syrup can work – but only if the sprinkles are very small.

If you go with a larger sprinkle, you will need to brush on something thicker onto the glass rim – such as honey or maple syrup or even a corn syrup – to really get the candies to stick.

STEP 1: MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP

If you bought your syrup, you can skip this step. If you want to make your own simple syrup, add two parts sugar to one part water to a saucepan. Bring to boil in saucepan and CAREFULLY and CONSTANTLY stir until sugar dissolves and the liquid mixture is clear. The liquid may take on a slightly golden color, depending on if you are using raw or organic sugar. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and completely cool the syrup.

Store the simple syrup in an airtight container, in your fridge, until ready to use. This simple syrup can stay fresh up to 4 weeks

STEP TWO: MAKE YOUR VALENTINE’S KISS RIMMING SUGAR

To make your Valentine’s Kiss cocktail rimming sugar, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of the edible confetti to 2 tablespoons of white sanding sugar into a small bowl. Stir well and set aside.

STEP THREE: MAKE YOUR PUNCH

In a large pitcher, combine champagne, ginger ale, and pomegranate juice. (All liquids should be chilled before combining.) Stir and taste. If you’d like the drink sweeter, add a splash of simple syrup. If it’s good to go, serve and enjoy!
