CHAMPAGNE PUNCH

DSC_8612

One part Air Mail, another part Old cuban, and with some pineapple thrown because “why not?”, this champagne punch is a play on classics.  It’s not too sweet or too boozy, so you’ll have every type of guest clamoring around the punch bowl, clinking those adorable little cups. Auld Lang Syne and all that! Happy New Year!
