Part of having a happy family life is mastering simple crowd-pleasing recipes to share with loved ones.  This Mock Champagne Recipe is versatile, easy, and delicious.  Garnish according to the season or occasion to make it extra special.

Start with a 7 quart punch bowl (I purchased mine at Ross for $15.00) and pour into it chilled pineapple juice (1-46 fluid ounce can), white grape juice (1-64 ounce bottle), and ginger ale (1-2 liter bottle.)  A second liter of ginger ale can be added  or used to make a frozen garnish.

For Christmas, I made a “wreath” (pictured) by freezing ginger ale, fresh rosemary, and pomegranate seeds, in a plastic bowl with a weighted plastic cup to form the center hole.  For a Baby Shower, I simply floated fresh raspberries.  Now I’m wondering how to fancy up a New Year’s punch.  Any suggestions?

  1. Looks awesome, Angie!

    What about something in a star shape for New Year’s? To symbolize fireworks.

    When I was a girl, they’d put a whole half gallon of a sherbet ice cream in the punch to keep it chilled and make it kind of creamy, for most of the wedding receptions I went to. 🙂 I remember watching that block of ice cream getting smaller and smaller, lol.
