Project Amour Eric and Chandra's Journey to Get Married in Paris


A la recherche du Punch mariage parfait

In Search of the Pefect Wedding Punch

For our wedding celebration I am in pursuit of the best wedding punch ever.  I have been scouring the internet and talking with friends and family to try and find THE recipe for us.  We are trying to incorporate a French or Parisian feel to as much of our party as possible and the punch is no exception.  Last year I had some friends over and prepared a "Champagne Punch."  This is a definite possibility since we can easily make it with French Champagne.  It is really something special.  The recipe is as follows:


  • 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup limoncello
  • 2 teaspoons vermouth
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle chilled dry Champagne or sparkling wine
  • Ice
  • Lemon twists, for garnish


Combine the lemon juice, sugar, vodka, Limoncello, and vermouth in a large nonreactive bowl and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, 1 to 2 hours. Add the Champagne and stir to combine.


Another of my favorite punches is terrific for a fall reception or party.  Called a "Tart and Bubbly" punch the star of this drink is cranberries:

Tart and Bubbly Punch:


  • 2 (6 ounce) cans frozen pink lemonade concentrate
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen pineapple juice concentrate
  • 1 gallon cranberry juice
  • 2 liters cranberry ginger ale
  • 4 cups crushed ice

In a large punch bowl, mix lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice concentrate and cranberry juice. Add ice and slowly pour in the ginger ale.

Over the next several weeks I will be trying out several other punch recipes.  I am looking for something sophisticated and delicious!  If you have any suggestions please post and I will give them a try.
