This Holiday Champagne Punch is a bowl full of holiday cheer! Nothing means celebration quite like a bottle of bubbly, so what better way to celebrate the holidays than with this festive spiced Holiday Champagne Punch? Filled with all of the flavors of the season, this is the perfect punch for low-stress entertaining. This post has been sponsored by Brown-Forman on behalf of Korbel California Champagne. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
During the holiday season, I host several different gatherings. And punch is always included. It’s such an easy-to-make, no-fuss party drink. I love that simply tossing together a handful of ingredients gives you such a stunning (and tasty) centerpiece for your party table. And making this spiced punch with Korbel California Champagne adds a delightful effervescence that is sure to make your celebration even more merry and bright.

Can You Prepare Champagne Punch In Advance?
Yes! Simply combine all the ingredients—except your Korbel California Champagne—the morning of your event or up to a day before. Cover the punch and stash in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve, transfer the punch mix to your serving vessel and add in the champagne. I always have an additional open bottle of Korbel California Champagne next to the punch so guests can top off their glasses and get the iconic bubbles.
Tips For Being The Hostess With The Mostess
- Make it easy for your guests to serve themselves by setting up a DIY punch station that makes the punchbowl, glasses, and garnishes easily accessible from all sides.
- Serve up a non-alcoholic version of this Holiday champagne punch by swapping in sparkling water, grape juice, or apple cider.
- To keep your punch nice and chilled, match the size of your ice to the size of the serving vessel. If serving in a large punch bowl, use a larger block or ring of ice. It’s easy to make your own ice ring using a bundt cake pan. Just fill halfway with water, toss in some cranberries and sliced fruit, then freeze.
- When your pitcher runs out, simply add more cider, Korbel, and ginger ale to the fruit to make another batch.
- Whip up a tasty appetizer (or two or three) to serve alongside your Champagne punch. Try my French Onion Soup Dip and Smoked Salmon 7 Layer Dip.
- And most important, always make sure your guests have a safe ride home.
