from Gourmet Magazine, December 2006. I recommend prosecco (a sparkling Italian wine) but 'zaar doesn't recognize it... and of course, any champagne will do nicely!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups fresh blood orange juice (from about 10 oranges)
  • 13 cup Grand Marnier or 13 cup other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle champagne, chilled well


  1. Stir together juice, liqueur, and sugar in a 2-quart pitcher until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Chill until cold, about 1 hour.
  3. Slowly pour in Prosecco, stirring to combine.
  4. Serve immediately.
  5. Note: Juice mixture, without Prosecco, can be chilled, covered, up to 1 day. Stir in Prosecco just before serving.
