This is my favorite punch in the entire world. It is like a little bit of heaven, that is the only way to describe it. Make this for a shower, a birthday party, or just a Friday night - after having this I decided no special occasion is needed to make this. You can make it with champagne, or without still tastes delicious either way. Beware my Gaty (boyfriends mother) made this and, she says it was an accident I'm calling BS -- she put 3 bottles of pink champagne in one batch - its only supposed to be one. By the end of the shower we had the alcohol flush, and giggles.
I always get so caught up when I am at a party or throwing a party, I take pictures of the food and forget to take specific shots. So all I have is a picture of it in the punch bowl.
