Sparkling Rum Punch

I meant to share photos and recipes from our NYE party this year but as usual got so focused on the party that I forgot to take pics.  Anyway, my trick of serving a specialty drink seemed to do the trick again and thought I would share the recipe for anyone adding to their party repertoire.  This recipe for Sparkling Rum Punch comes from Southern Living’s December 2012 issue:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 2 (750-milliliter) bottles sparkling wine, chilled

Preparation

  1. Stir together orange juice, orange liqueur, and rum in a medium bowl; cover and chill 1 hour. Pour mixture into a large pitcher or punch bowl, and top with chilled sparkling wine. Serve immediately.
  2. Note: We tested with Cointreau orange liqueur and Asti Spumante sparkling wine.

I added the rosemary and orange slice as in the picture and also a mint leaf.  Really yummy!  This would also be a refreshing drink for a summer party.

    Oh my, looks like something I’d drink three glasses of before realizing it’s too late. :) Yum!
