Champagne Punch Ingredients

Everything you’ll need to make this easy drink!

Classic champagne punch is a simple combination of chilled champagne along with fresh fruit juices and sometimes, flavored liqueurs like Grand Marnier. My citrus twist on champagne punch includes:

  • Fresh Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
  • Fresh Orange Juice
  • Champagne (or Sparkling Wine)
  • Simple Syrup
  • Grenadine

The Best Champagne for Champagne Punch

Not sure which bottle to buy? Here are tips:

I suggest a dry or Brut champagne (or sparkling wine) to avoid your punch being too sweet. You can always cut back on the simple syrup if you have a sweeter champagne variety.

I always like to give you tips on how to prep ahead! We all know the last few minutes before a party can be hectic. Getting dressed, placing food out, greeting early guests, all the things.

Tips for Making Champagne Punch

  • You don’t have to include the grenadine but I love the punch of ombre color it gives this citrus champagne punch! If you find yourself short of that ingredient, don’t let it stop you. Your punch will still taste amazing.
  • A little reminder from above, if you prefer a drink that’s not too sweet, just use less simple syrup. Or if the grapefruit juice you buy has added sugar, then cut back on the simple syrup.
  • Make it pretty by adding edible flowers, sprigs of herbs (thyme works well), or a cute straw!

I love to garnish my champagne punch. I love to float blooms of “Sweet Williams” (don’t worry, they’re safe).

If you can’t find organic edible petals or don’t want to float blooms, opt for sliced citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange. It will be gorgeous!

FAQs about Champagne Punch

If serving from a pitcher, ice is an easy route for single serve glasses. If serving from a punch bowl, make an “ice ring” by freezing water in a bundt pan, dip pan in warm water to loosen ice ring for removal. Float it in your punch bowl.

Add sherbet to any punch by scooping it right into the punch bowl! I love raspberry and orange sherbets with this recipe.

You’ll want to enjoy it on the day it is made, preferably within a couple of hours.

To prepare in advance, you can combine the grapefruit juice, orange juice, and simple syrup up to two days ahead. Just keep refrigerated until ready to serve. The finishing touch on this punch comes as you serve it with champagne and a splash of grenadine.

  4. Perfect Punch Recipe for my Sister in Law to be Bridal Shower.

    After doing a trial run a few weeks before, I ended up opting for Cranberry Juice in place of the grapefruit. It still seemed too sweet for out tastes so I added equal parts (750 mL bottle) of sparkling water along with the Champagne and it was perfect.

    I had to make refill the punch bowl halfway through the party. And none was left by the end of the day. I have already had a guest reach out and request the recipe.
