Perfect party punch. There aren’t many other words that would describe this punch as… perfectly!
Also, my english teacher husband/editor is off doing football-y and manish things, so I am keeping it short to avoid many grammatical errors and spelling errors. PS If you see any errors, don’t tell me. Once Mike gets home I will have him fix them. What else is a husband for?
Anyway, back to the punch!
Make it ahead of time and then right before guests arrive add in the Prosecco. It is kind of like a lighter sangria with less fermenting time, which means you get to sample some a lot earlier!
