Cranberry Champagne Punch
- 1 large lemon, thinly sliced
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 2 (750 ml) bottles dry champagne
- 1½ cups white rum
- 1½ cups cranberry juice
- Place lemon slices, cranberries, and mint leaves into a large bowl that’s about ⅓ the size of the bowl you plan to use for your punch. Fill the bowl with water and freeze until it’s party time, at least 2 hours..
- Run warm water over the bottom of the bowl to release the giant ice cube; Place it flat-side up into your punch bowl.
- Pour champagne, rum, and cranberry juice into the bowl; stir.
The larger the ice cube, the longer it takes to melt! The ice ring ensures there's no watered down punch with this recipe If you like, substitute unsweetened pomegranate juice for the cranberry juice and garnish with pomegranate seeds in place of whole cranberries.

This recipe is perfect to make when you are entertaining. I didn't use a high-end champagne or anything, and my guests loved it. Super easy and fun!
Stephanie D says:
Delicious champagne punch! I used a rose champagne, and it was really good. I also added a little more rum!
Erica Schaefer says:
This champagne punch worked great. I actually doubled the batch and served it at my housewarming party. I also added fresh strawberries to the punch bowl. If you're using glasses, I suggest adding a little sugar to the rim. It was a big hit with out guests.
Katie Hason says:
This champagne punch was right up my alley! I made it for a group of girlfriends at a brunch I hosted at my house. It was gone before all the food! Next time I'll have to double the batch! It was so simple to make, which I love! It's a must try any time of year.

My wife made this cranberry champagne punch recently and it was really good. Use a decent bottle of champagne and rum, and you've got yourself a high-end tasting, delicious drink. It's perfect for brunch!
