This recipe is such a winner; it combines two of my favorite flavors- orange and cranberry. If you have any bubbly left over from New Year's, here's the best possible way to use it up. Guaranteed!
2 oranges, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
3 cups cranberry juice, chilled
3/4 cup orange liqueur
2 bottles champagne or sparkling white wine, chilled
2/3 cup frozen cranberries, plus additional for garnish
- Freeze orange slices and cranberries for about an hour, or until frozen solid.
- Meanwhile, chill punch bowl in refrigerator or freezer.
- When ready to serve, combine cranberry juice with orange liqueur.
- Add champagne, and float frozen oranges and cranberries in the punch.
This recipe goes fast, so double it for much festive goodness. I actually halved it for a small group, and we ran out pretty quickly.
Garnish your glasses with some of those frozen cranberries, and enjoy!
