How to serve champagne punch

You can absolutely make the best champagne punch for a crowd right in your serving bowl or pitcher if you think you can keep things clean and pretty.

Although this is a punch and your natural instinct might be to run towards your standard punch bowl, you can also change things up a bit.

Here I decided to use a vase to serve the punch in. The shape was fun, it was plastic and perfect for serving outdoors.

You could also put this champagne punch with pineapple juice in a serve-yourself drink dispenser. Or, OMG!, a punch fountain! Or use a pitcher so it’s easy to walk around and refill glasses.

If your drink container doesn’t have a pour spout, just use a ladle to serve. It is punch after all! Punch bowls are gorgeous but not needed.

One of my favorite things about entertaining is using things in new ways or doing things a little bit differently. Sometimes these little touches are enough to create a lasting memory for your guest. And as a host, that’s truly what we’re after.

If serving in a clear container, you can really see the citrus slices in the punch.

For a party, I typically don’t garnish the punch once it’s in the cups. Sometimes I feel like I’m fighting the garnish just to get a sip. But that’s just me. I’m lazy.
