Ruby Red Wine Punch

Susan Feliciano


My parents served a similar punch at their 25th wedding anniversary party. They used my father's homemade Sparkling Burgundy.
This is very good, so if you have guests under 21 or who don't imbibe, be sure to make some with one of the dealcoholized red wines. Sutter Home Fre has some good ones.
