My husband brought home a bottle of my favorite sparkling wine this weekend – Martini & Rossi Asti. While I enjoy drinking it plain, I think it tastes wonderful with fresh fruit.
My husband and I both enjoy traditional red wine sangria with brandy and citrus fruits. That concept of mixing fruit and wine inspired this punch recipe. It’s a very simple recipe that can easily be made for 2 or 20. Try using your favorite juice and fruit for a bit of variety.
- Fresh pineapple, cut into bite size pieces
- Fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 part cranberry juice (100% juice, no sugar added)
- 2 parts sparkling wine or champagne
Chill the wine or champagne. Place the pineapple and strawberries in the bottom of a glass pitcher. Add the cranberry juice. Stir to combine. Chill for 30 minutes, letting the flavors combine. Add the wine or champagne to the fruit mixture right before serving.
