A whiskey fruit punch does not get much easier than this while maintaining a full bouquet of flavors. It is one of the punches created by Bobby "G" Gleason for Jim Beam's cherry bourbon, Red Stag, but this one has a bit more of a sophisticated touch than the Red Stag Lemonade due to the simple usage of champagne as the sparkling ingredient.

I spoke to Gleason about this drink and he says, "It makes for a great combination because passion fruit juice is a little on the tart side and it balances the sweetness of the bourbon and strawberry liqueur." He also recommends the easier option of passion fruit juice.

Total Time: 10 minutes

  2. To serve, ladle mixture into Champagne Flutes and top with Champagne.

*To make ice balls simple fill balloons with water and suspend from the rack in freezer until frozen (OK maybe more of a teardrop shape than a ball, but still very fun!)
