what to do with over-sweet sparkling wine

meld_la | Jan 6, 2009 07:11 AM

I have a large bottle of too-sweet sparkling wine taking up space in my fridge. I'm hosting a 7pm gathering of about 10 women at my place on Saturday and thought that I could perhaps make a fun champagne-based punch-type drink that everyone would enjoy?

As mentioned, the champagne is very sweet, so I need a recipe that takes this into account and doesn't end up tasting terrible overall.
I live in Toronto, so it will be a cold-weather assembly, if this matters.
I would prefer something without too much more alcohol.

any suggestions?

I have looked at the posting about champagne cocktails below, but it is the sweet factor that has me nonplussed.

Thank you!
