Fizzy For All

**found in InStyle Magazine, December 2011 Issue

Punch is one of the smartest ways to serve drinks at a shaking, stirring, or blending required.  This crowd-pleasing, sweet-tart blend, courtesy of Seattle entertaining expert Heather Christo, is made with prosecco, mixed juices, and cinnamon.  Yum!

!!!Make cranberry ice cubes!  Buy ice cube trays with unexpected shapes, such as stars and gemstones. We used a long, skinny cylinder style and dropped in fresh cranberries to create beautiful icy accent in the punch.  See pic!

Serves 10-20

2 trays cranberry ice (plus a 5-lb bag of regular ice)
Zest of 2 oranges
4 cinnamon sticks
5 cups cranberry juice
3 cups orange juice
2 bottles of prosecco
2 oranges or blood oranges, sliced

1. Pour regular ice into a punch bowl
2. Add cranberry ice, zest and cinnamon sticks
3.  Add juices, prosecco, and orange slices.  Stir.
4. Serve cold.  (For a stronger spiked punch, add 1 cup dark rum)

**Rum is naturally gluten-free

Enjoy!! xoxo Julie
