Couldn't be easier to make - not too sweet. Served it at a bridal shower and was preferred over the non-alcoholic punch.

We made this for a bridal shower and garnished it with a gingerale ring with strawberries and lemon/lime slices. It was refreshing and looked pretty as well.

I have used this recipe several times at family gatherings and it is always a huge hit. This is particulary good since it is not to sweet. I use the limeade instead of the pineapple and use a dry champagne, although if I were wanting a sweeter punch it would be just as easy to add the pineapple and use an Asti Spumanti in lieu of the dryer champagne.

I used this recipe as the inspiration for the low-cal punch I made for my christmas party last night. I used a bottle of light minute maid orange juice, a can of Welch's light frozen cranberry juice concentrate, 1 pack of crystal lite lemonade powder (2 quart size), 1/2 pack of crystal lite mango powder, 2L of diet ginger-ale and a bottle of champagne (no water). I mixed all the juices and drink mixes ahead of time and then mixed in the ginger-ale right before serving and added the champagne without stirring. It turned out perfect! It was just sweet enough to taste good, but not so much that you get tired of drinking it. My guests loved it!

I have been making this punch for over 35 years. I wonder if someone posted it after I gave him/her the recipe. Every time I serve it, it disappears very quickly, and I make a double batch. One year I tried it in a fountain. It doesn't work until all the bubbles disappear from the champagne and the ginger ale. I make an ice ring with cranberries and/or strawberries in it, one half green, one half red. You won't regret making this one.

I served this at our Christmas family gathering and it was a hit! It has a lighter, fresh, citrus-y flavor with notes of champagne. I wanted to use the pineapple concentrate instead of the limeade, but when I went to the store, I couldn't find the pineapple frozen concentrate. So I bought Dole Pineapple Juice instead (in the juice aisle) and used about 1/2 to 3/4 of the 46 fl. oz. can. It was perfect! We floated sliced limes on top for added color and interest. Note: You will need a larger punch bowl for this recipe.
