I can hardly believe it’s already 2015 and I think that’s plenty of cause to celebrate! A new year, a new you, and a new drink to kick things off right 🙂
Since mimosas are so 2014, this Raspberry Candy Champagne Punch is just the perfect new addition to your drink repertoire. Plus, this easily doubles as a brunch beverage or a dinnertime delight… hello, awesomeness! And it has just the right amount of sweetness without being too cloying. In fact, it may be the drink of 2015. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Bottoms up, friends!
- 2 cups champagne
- ½ cup raspberry syrup (I like Torani Sugar Free)
- ½ cup orange juice
- Fresh raspberries
- Raspberry rock candy sticks
- Place a handful of raspberries among each glass; top with ¼ cup raspberry syrup and ¼ cup orange juice in each glass. Finish off with a cup of champagne per glass.
- Serve with a raspberry rock candy as a swizzle stick garnish. I recommend setting them in each cup for a couple minutes to allow the candy to soak up some of the flavors, but if the candy's in there too long it will absorb into the drink, FYI.
Have a very safe and Happy New Year!!
Have a fabulous day!!
