Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Raise a toast with this fruity white wine punch”

This Champagne-White Wine Punch recipe is a perfect addition to any party, and the good news is that you can make it ahead of time! Simply prepare the punch as indicated in the recipe, but do not add the soda water or champagne. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

When it’s time to serve, remove the punch from the refrigerator and add the soda water and champagne. You might want to give it a quick stir before serving so that all of the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the punch.

If you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Keep in mind that the carbonation will start to dissipate over time, so it won’t be as bubbly as when you first made it.

To reheat the punch, simply pour it into a pot and heat over low heat until warm. Do not let it boil or it will lose its carbonation. You can also reheat individual servings in the microwave for about 10-20 seconds before serving.

This make-ahead option is perfect for hosting without feeling stressed about preparing everything at the last minute. With this Champagne-White Wine Punch recipe, you can make your guests happy without sacrificing your own enjoyment of your party!

Tips for Perfect Results

“Blend of fresh fruit and wine, perfect for sunny summer days”

Hosting a party can be stressful, especially when planning the drinks. But fear not, with these tips, your Champagne-White Wine Punch recipe will be a success!

1. Let Your Wine Chill

When making this punch recipe or any wine-based cocktail is essential that you keep the wine chilled before and during the party. This tip will ensure that your guests enjoy every last sip of your hard work.

2. Use Fresh Fruit Juices

This is a must to achieve the perfect flavor balance. Fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice are recommended for this particular recipe. However, if you can’t find these fresh juices in grocery stores, try squeezing them yourself at home.

3. Don’t Substitute Cointreau

Cointreau liqueur has a unique flavor that cannot be replaced by another triple sec brand. This specific orange-flavored liqueur gives the punch recipe its signature hint of orange and sweet taste.

4. Add Sherbet

Sherbet is an excellent addition to any punch recipe because it adds both sweetness and substance. It also helps to make the color of the punch more attractive.

5. Serve with Club Soda or Ginger Ale

Adding club soda or ginger ale instead of only sparkling wine makes the punch less boozy for those who don’t like strong cocktails. Plus, club soda or ginger ale guarantees that there is enough carbonation in every glass as people remove refills from the bowl.

6. Make-Ahead

Make-ahead recipes are lifesavers for parties because they save you time when entertaining guests. Fortunately, you can make this Champagne-White Wine Punch ahead of time by mixing all ingredients except for sparkling wine and club soda hours before the event, then add only sparkling drinks just before starting to serve.

7. Invest in Good Quality Wines

When preparing any mixed drink with alcohol, it’s essential to use good quality spirits to achieve good flavor notes in your cocktail. When choosing champagne or white wine for this punch recipe, pick out a decent dry white wine or sparkling wine to ensure the most beautiful flavors.

8. Be Creative with Garnish

Garnishes make every drink look better! Adding slices of citrus fruits like orange or grapefruit and fresh fruit, like cherries and strawberries are excellent choices for this recipe. Be sure to let your guests know that they can add them to their glasses for an extra pop of flavor!
