Mango Mimosa Punch

Standard

IMG_2196

As one of the hostesses at a bridal shower (congratulations, Kelsey and Nate!), I volunteered to do the spiked punch.  I wanted something without too much of an alcohol kick, and the challenge was to make a punch with one of the wedding colors — either navy or coral.  Since the cupcakes were going to have coral-colored icing, I decided to search for a blue cocktail.  A pitcher of tropical punch vodka and blue curacao later, I decided it was too boozy for my taste, and would knock some of the old ladies attending right on the floor.  I decided next to experiment with some revisions to a punch I make often for showers.  Usually I do equal parts champagne or prosecco, Sprite Zero, and cranberry juice. (I don’t really measure; you can’t go wrong!)  This time, I substituted V-8 Splash Mango Peach juice for the cranberry.  To get the color a little more on the coral side rather than orange, I added a splash of grenadine.

V-8

This recipe is a keeper.  Proportions don’t have to be exact, and you don’t need expensive champagne for the punch.  I usually look for bottles in the $10 range.  You can easily make just one glass or a full vat.
