Come Party With Me: Harvest Party — Drinks

Oct 8 2009 - 3:00pm
During the main meal at my harvest-themed dinner party [1], I'll pair the chicken and risotto [2] with wine. However, before we sit down to the table, I want to treat guests to a luxurious champagne cocktail.

Since a punch easily quenches the thirst of a crowd, I'll be mixing a large bowl of classic champagne punch. The cocktail gets its rosy hue from chambord, a raspberry-flavored liquor.

With the poached pear dessert [3], I'll let guests sip a sweet late harvest wine. To check out the recipe I'll be using for the punch, keep reading.
