I’m such a fan of spiked punch recipes when entertaining. Unless you have hired bartenders on hand, you don’t want to be in the kitchen mixing drinks the entire party! This Blackberry Thyme Sparkling Punch recipe is perfect for fall parties. The blackberries and thyme are excellent flavors for fall and the blackberry thyme-infused vodka gives the punch a unique twist! The recipe is best when the ice melts for about 10 minutes, so you can add the ice in before guests arrive and the punch will be perfect when the party starts! The recipe is below! Enjoy!
Blackberry Thyme Sparkling Punch
1 cup blackberry thyme-infused vodka (recipe below)
2 pints blackberries
juice of 1 large lemon
1/2 cup sugar
1 bottle sparkling white wine
a lot of ice (half bag)
In a punch bowl or large serving container, muddle the blackberries, sugar and lemon juice. Add in the vodka and stir. Then add in the ice and sparkling white wine. Stir well and let it sit for about 10 minutes so the ice melts and dilutes it a bit.
