Hey, happy holidays! I’m Marie Guaragna with MGB special events located in Arlington, Virginia. And today, I‘ve been showing you how to make some wonderful quick and easy holiday appetizers for your next party. And what we’re going to do now is we’re going to wrap it all up and finish it up with a wonderful champagne punch and this is what you’re going to need. We’ll need some champagne, we’ll need some Triple Sec and we’ll need some brandy. We’re going to need a couple of champagne flutes because I don’t want to drink alone. We need a wonderful punch bowl and a ladle to serve it with. So, let s get started. Now, I don’t know about you guys but I love champagne especially around the holidays and there are a lot of excuses to drink this stuff. There are so many parties and you have got between Christmas Eve and Christmas and of course, don’t forget New Year’s Eve, lots of wonderful reasons to use the champagne. Now, I certainly wouldn’t go out and buy a bottle of Dom Perignon for this. You could use any kind of champagne, it doesn’t have to be the most expensive, it doesn’t have to be the least expensive but just something that you generally like to have. Let’s see if we can get a big pop out of this, because you got to have a pop. There we go. Okay so, now you want to put this, you want to wait ‘till the last minute because we’re not going to use any ice in this punch. We want this very well chilled. So, we’re going to just go ahead and pour that in. You don’t want to take too long because once champagne has been out, it's going to lose its bubbles so just pour it in, there we go. Okay, I'm just going to use about a quarter cup of Triple Sec and about a quarter cup of your favorite brandy. It doesn’t have to be real expensive either and we’re going to take our ladle and just mix that around. Now, what I like to do also is you can pop a couple of cranberries in here just to make it look more festive but what I went ahead and did today was made pretty little red bows on our champagne flutes. Okay, we’re just going to just gently put that in. Some for you and some for me, love the bubbly. Oh, it smells great. So once you’ve got your wonderful appetizers out there, it’s nothing like finishing off with a wonderful champagne punch to toast your holiday parties. So, happy holidays, enjoy!
