Summertime Punch

Summer has arrived and the festivities in North America are about to begin. First with Canada Day and shortly after, America’s 4th of July celebrations. This is a perfect punch to serve for either but certainly shouldn’t be exclusive for a special occasion. This delicious punch is a refreshing thirst quencher on any hot Summer day.


1 750 ml sparkling white wine

1 750 ml red wine (such as Pinot Noir)

1 cup brandy

1/2 cup strawberry liquor

1 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup simple syrup

2 cups lemonade


Combine all ingredients except sparkling wine in a large punch bowl with sufficient ice. Stir to combine. Pour in sparkling wine and gently stir.
