A wine merchant friend gave me this recipe many years ago. It makes a very pretty refreshing punch. The Creme de Cassis gives the punch a lovely pink smoke look. During the holidays, I add an ice mold with red and green candied cherries. In summer I use a mold with edible flowers.

  1. The wine to Creme de Cassis ratio is personal preference. I prefer a slightly sweet punch so I use a bit more, if you want a dryer punch use a bit less Creme de Cassis and a dry wine like a Chablis. Pour wine and Creme de Cassis into a punch bowl. Stir gently. Add sparkling water. Taste and adjust Creme de Cassis if necessary.
