Cardinal Punch

Champagne and club soda lighten up this deep-red punch made with claret wine, brandy, and dark rum. Fresh orange and pineapple slices add a hint of citrus and bright color. Learn how to open a Champagne bottle the right way so the bubbles stay effervescent (and you don’t put out anyone’s eye).

What to buy: Wines labeled “claret” are red wines that contain a blend of Bordeaux grapes. You can find them in most well-stocked wine shops or online.
