Four Seasons Sparkling Punch

Four seasons punch www.abeautifulmess.com Here in southern Missouri we love celebrating the four seasons. Sure, it can feel a little sad to know that summer is almost over. But this simply means that fall is about to begin! As much as I love tank tops and warm weather I am excited to bake with more apples, break out the scarves and order a pumpkin spice latte when the day comes. 🙂 We partnered with Coppola Wines to create a sparkling punch recipe that can be customized to fit any season you are currently celebrating.Four seasons punch www.abeautifulmess.com   The idea is simple: Add fruits to this basic punch recipe that showcase the seasons. We used Sofia Blanc de Blancs in this punch because it includes flavors of apples, pears, citrus and honeysuckle. Apples and pears sound like autumn flavors, while citrus is all summer.Four seasons punch www.abeautifulmess.comFour Seasons Sparkling Punch, makes 8-10 servings (so throw a party!)

2 bottles Sofia Blanc de Blancs sparkling white wine
1/2 cup light simple syrup (recipe follows)
1 apple
1 pear
1 starfruit
1 orange
1 grapefruit
1 lime
edible flowers for garnish 

To make light simple syrup combine 1/2-cup water with 1/2-cup sugar. Stir together over medium heat until all the sugar as dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool before use.

Slice the citrus (orange, grapefruit and lime) in half. From one half extract the juice. Use the other half to slice into thin pieces. Slice the remaining fruit into thin pieces as well.Cocktails with sparkling wine www.abeautifulmess.comIn a punch bowl combine the simple syrup, citrus juices, fruit peices and wine. Give it all a good stir and garnish with edible flowers if you can find any. If not don't worry, this punch is pretty enough for a party without any additional garnish. Four seasons punch www.abeautifulmess.com     Serve chilled and enjoy! xo. Emma

  • So pretty! I love all of the fruit. Especially the star fruit. Growing up my mom always made a fruit salad for Christmas that had star fruit in it, so very sentimental. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  • Yum, that looks delicious!! I am a huge sucker for anything sangria or jungle juicy. xoxo

  • I just found a fabulous vintage punch bowl on sale, and now you’ve shared a stellar recipe. This looks amazing! I can’t wait to give it a try for a housewarming party. Thank you!

  • Monica, Edible flowers is something we’ve done a bit of research on and there is a LOT of conflicting information out there. For now, we stick with packs labeled “edible flowers” at the grocery store. 🙂

  • This punch is SO pretty, I love the touch of the edible flowers xx

  • i haven’t had starfruit in YEARS!

    APparently summer is returning next week- i’ll flag this recipe up fer sure!

  • I was admiring a punch bowl in a shop window the other day! Now I have an excuse to buy one 🙂

    I love the idea of a punch that can be adapted to all seasons. You could swap the wine for a rose, pop in strawberries and raspberries and have the perfect punch for a ladies night in…

  • I love the idea of celebrating the change of seasons. Might have to start doing this instead of repeating the dread of summer ending.

    Also – that punch is so cute!

  • This punch looks beautiful and delicious. Love the addition of flowers!

    Just wanted to know, is there a good guide of what flowers are edible? Because I would definitely not have picked orchids.

  • I started creating punch bowls at the parties I host and people love them! It is such a classic party addition and looks beautiful! I create one without alcohol and a bottle of alcohol next to it for anyone who wants to put a bit of it in their drink.
