Recipe by Big Mtnt Woman
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 liter white wine (I prefer a sweeter white wine such as a Sauternes, but any white wine will do)
- 1 jigger creme de cassis (blackcurrant liquor)
- 1 (2 liter) bottle sparkling water
Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
