House Home Photo Framboise Apricot Punch Recipe Drink The Bubbly Bar

This fruity drink hits the perfect balance between sweet, tart, and potent with its combination of cognac, apricot brandy, and raspberry eau-de-vie. Start this punch the day before you plan to serve it.

Yield: 
6 servings
Ingredients: 

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 cup pomegranate seeds, divided
3/4 cup framboise (raspberry eau-de-vie)
1/2 cup VSOP cognac
1/4 cup apricot brandy
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour mix
2 bottles brut sparkling wine

Instructions: 

Step 1: Combine the orange juice, water, and 1/2 cup of the pomegranate seeds in a small ring mold or a small square plastic container with a lid. Freeze for 24 hours. Combine the framboise, cognac, apricot brandy, orange and lemon slices, and sugar in a plastic container. Let the fruit soak in the liquor overnight.

Step 2: The day you plan to serve the punch, pour the sour mix and 2 bottles of sparkling wine into a large punch bowl.

Step 3: Add the liquor-soaked fruit, syrup, and the remaining 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds. Crown the punch with the orange and pomegranate ice mold, which will keep the punch cold.
