Happy New Year Champagne Punch | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on September 23, 2011

With the New Year Parties right around the corner; here is an easy New Years Punch recipe from The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book, which has a special twist for your party friends with a sweet tooth, and is sure to be talked about well into the New Year as a unique and tasty addition to your party. Do Enjoy!

1 Can (6oz) Frozen Lemonade Concentrate

1 Btl (750 ml) Champagne, chilled

2 ¾ Cup Unsweetened Pineapple Juice

2 Cup Chilled Club Soda

1 ½ Cup dry white wine, chilled

2 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream

  1. In a large bowl prepare the lemonade according to package directions; add Champagne, Pineapple juice, Club Soda, and Wine. Mix lightly
  2. Top with scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream and stir gently just before serving.

Yield 32 – 4 oz Servings

Variations –

  1. Red – Substitute Cherry Kool-Aid for lemonade but use more club soda and Peppermint Schnapps instead of water (half and half), Pink Champagne, and a Red Wine for white; use Cherry Ice Cream, (this one has a real kick!)
  2. Green – make as original recipe but use half Vodka when you mix the lemonade, and prepare three dozen green Jello Shooters and use them and pistachio Ice cream, for the toppings. ( a hangover waiting to happen).

All in all a great way to add to the fun. Always, always have a designated driver, and drink responsibly. If the party is at your house take everyone’s car keys on entry (and make sure it’s the designated driver that holds them) and have a crash space for your friends. Even Better take a cab to and from the party, splurge a little after all it’s New Years!

      Love this hub and love the recipe. Just recently, I came across a punch bowl that I have had for years, but haven't used. Now I know what to do with it. Thanks so much.
