Come Party With Me: Spring Dinner — Drinks

While some people believe that punches, especially the sparkling sort, should only be consumed around the Winter holidays, I happen to disagree. A beautiful and bubbly punch is too good to only enjoy once a year! I serve sangria, pitcher drinks, and other punches no matter what month it is. A celebratory dinner that honors a new season, like Spring, is the perfect occasion to bust out the punch bowl and ice block. This effervescent recipe combines red wine with brandy, Champagne, and fresh fruit. It calls for strawberries and raspberries, but I recommend using rhubarb instead of raspberries; they scream Spring. Want the easy recipe? Please read more.
