Best Champagne Punch Recipe w/ Gingerale, Orange Liqueur, Cranberries & Basil

Here’s my super-quick, easy and delicious recipe for a Champagne Punch made with Ginger Ale, Orange Liqueur and pretty Christmas-colored garnishes. It’s not too sweet. Just the perfect drink to sip on during a special evening.

Best Champagne Punch Recipe with Ginger Ale Orange Liqueur, Cranberries and Basil

It’s Christmas Eve! I’m going to be spending tonight wrapping presents with my husband. We’re going to put the kids to bed, put on some Christmas carols and make a punch to sip on through the evening.

This Champagne Punch is really easy to make and only has 3 ingredients, including the Champagne!

(Two more ingredients if you do the garnishes of frozen cranberries and basil leaves. They add a really pretty holiday touch and the basil is truly truly delicious in there).

I like to make this Champagne punch recipe for evenings when I don’t want to get tipsy quickly. You know, those nights when you have a lot to get done (like Christmas Eve) or when you want to make sure you don’t get sleepy too early (like New Year’s Eve).

It’s made of  half sparkling wine and half ginger ale with just a touch of orange liqueur so it’s not very potent. It’s also not very sweet.

It’s just the thing to sip on together as we imagine our kids happy faces tomorrow morning.

Here’s my Champagne Punch with Ginger Ale and Orange Liqueur recipe:

Champagne Drinks make me happy. You too? Here’s my recipe for a Make Your Own Champagne Cocktail Bar that includes 6 Champagne Cocktails that together only use 9 ingredients (including the champagne!). It’s perfect fun for a New Year’s Eve party or any celebration.

    But even if your salon is a smoke free environment, the smoke from straightening and curling irons can
    make the air thick. Although it smells lovely, the scent doesn’t
    mix well with my perfume soo I have to make sure not to use the ttwo at the same time.
    It seems clear that whether or not a merchandise of our nature or constitution and cosmetic surgery beauty marries
    upper social class is an property that allows travel in the fast lane or under obstacles.

    We made this punch on Boxing Day. It was really good. Not too sweet. I really liked the basil leaves in it even though I didn’t think I would.

      Sam, I’m so happy you liked it! I’ve been experimenting with basil leaves in sweeter things more and more. They go really well with cranberries. And also strawberries. (Sorry for the delayed reaction. I missed your comment somehow. Have a happy holiday season this year!). -Christine
