Mulled Apple Champagne Punch

"A clear, golden sparkly punch. This makes 18 - 5 ounce glasses. I suggest you plan on several glasses per person unless many guests are teetotalers. I was greatly embarrassed to see how quickly it was disappearing, and ended up with a greatly diluted version before long. I just had to keep adding regular white wine to the mix when the second batch started to empty out. Punch is not hugely popular here, but it certainly was that night!"

  2. Strain the wine mixture through a coffee filter, being careful not to disturb the spices which have settled to the bottom of the pitcher.
  3. Just before serving, slide in the ice ring. Slowly pour the champagne down the side of the bowl to retain as much carbonization as possible.

This punch was excellent! It smells and tastes great! Previous reviewer is right, though. I doubled the batch, and still ran out! Everyone just loved it! The Champagne adds the fizz, and it is delightful. On the second batch, I used slightly less of the mulled wine, and more of the champagne, because the spices are strong. Not to worry, though. We used up the leftover mulled wine with more champagne the next weekend! It seems to keep quite a while.

IT WAS GOOD, TO SPICY FOR ME, BUT OTHERS INJOYED IT.

I sampled this before putting it on the Halloween menu and it is great! I don't even like pineapple normally.
