Happy Hour @ 1102

Ginger Champagne  Cocktail

Just because the Holidays are over there is no need to put away the Champagne.  I like this bubbly wine, and you can  usually get a decent bottle relatively cheap.  Plus any good mix master always has at least 1 bottle of champagne around for special occasions.  So try this one for your @ Home Happy Hour.  Enjoy!

Twinkling Ginger Champagne Punch


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light-color corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • tablespoons finely snipped crystallized ginger
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 750 milliliter bottle champagne, chilled


1.  In a small saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and candied ginger. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vodka; cool to room temperature. Cover and chill for 4 hours or overnight. Strain the vodka mixture to remove the candied ginger; discard ginger.

2.  Pour vodka mixture into a large bowl. Slowly pour the champagne down side of bowl; stir gently with an up-and-down motion to mix.

3.  To serve, ladle punch mixture into champagne glasses or punch cups. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
