Summer has arrived and the festivities in North America are about to begin. First with Canada Day and shortly after, America’s 4th of July celebrations. This is a perfect punch to serve for either but certainly shouldn’t be exclusive for a special occasion. This delicious punch is a refreshing thirst quencher on any hot Summer day.
1 750 ml sparkling white wine
1 750 ml red wine (such as pinot noir)
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup strawberry liquor
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup simple syrup
2 cups lemonade
Combine all ingredients except sparkling wine in a large punch bowl with sufficient ice. Stir to combine. Pour in sparkling wine and gently stir.
