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 pretty garnishes of frozen cranberries and basil leaves. They add a really pretty holiday touch).

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. 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:

    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.
