Cranberry Champagne Punch

This was enjoyed at a recent departmental party
  • 1-2 sliced oranges
  • 1-2 sliced lemons
  • 1-2 cups brandy
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 2 cans frozen cranberry juice concentrate
  • 2 bottles chilled dry champagne
Several days before your event, slice lemons and oranges, put in jar with corn syrup and brandy. Soak for several days in refrigerator, shaking occasionally.  Strain and pour into punch bowl along with thawed cranberry juice. Slowly pour in champagne and stir.  I used an ice ring made with cran-raspberry juice, with raspberries and orange slices to garnish.
