Chardonnay lovers, here is your cocktail. An excellent celebration or brunch punch, this recipe should be made about 30 minutes before serving. Add the ice just before serving, but long enough ahead to chill the mixture. You’ll need a moderately priced bottle of chardonnay and some sparkling wine or champagne made from chardonnay. The recipe serves 10.
1 bottle of chardonnay
1/2 bottle of sparking wine from chardonnay
2 ounces of brandy
1 tablespoon of honey
1 ripe peach, pitted and thinly sliced
1 cup raspberries, rinsed
In a sauce pan, warm the brandy over low heat. Add the honey and stir until dissolved. Pour the mixture into a large pitcher or punch bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir and let sit for 30 minutes. Before serving, add 12 or more ice cubes. Stir again until chilled. Serve in wine glasses with some of the fruit.
