Great tasting, easy, quick punch for any occasion. I always double the champagne. In addition, I freeze orange juice in a round Tupperware jello mold and have that float in the punch bowl for it's chill-effect, looks and added orange flavor. (I have also added maraschino cherries and whole mint leaves to the OJ, prior to freezing ... it looks pretty neat if you make them look like flowers by setting the mint leaves & cherries in the bottom of the jello mold; SLOWLY add a small amount of OJ to cover. Freeze that, then fill the rest of the jello mold and freeze solid.)Read More
I served this with sliced strawberries instead of whole. Next time I would stick with whole ones because it made it look merky and you couldn't tell it was strawberries. Everyone liked it though... I may try next time cutting down on the ginger ale a bit too.Read More

I pureed the strawberries instead of leaving them whole and dipped the edge of the glasses in decorative sugar. Good easy punch and my guests really liked it.
I made this punch for New Year's Eve and it was delicious...however, I too made it more interesting and fun by using 2 champagne and only 1 ginger ale. I also made a ice ring with strawberries and ginger ale that kept it cold until it was gone!! Big hit with everyone. A definite for next year and maybe during the year, if the occasion arises.
This was such a nice change of pace for my New Year's party! Although I scaled back the ginger ale to 1 liter per bottle of champagne - I did want people to have a good time, after all! Two liters would be terrible - but 1 liter was perfect. I bet this would also work nicely with frozen raspberries or even blueberries. Thanks a lot Phyllis! I'll make this on future special occasions.
Prepared this for a wedding shower I was hosting. It was a huge hit and simple to make.

I am getting married next month and plan on serving this to my guests. We did a trial run this weekend and WOW is this stuff tasty! We used Pink Champagne and used one bottle of that to one 2-liter bottle of ginger ale and only used 1-10 ounce pkg of strawberries. This recipe is definetly a keeper!
This was very good. I used 2 liters of ginger ale for 1 bottle of champagne, but it could have used more champagne. I also liked it even better the second day when the strawberry flavor was infused in the drink. Next time, I'll prepare a day in advance and not worry about the strawberries being thawed out. I think it works well that way. Pureed strawberries, as one user suggests, would probably be the best. I will definitely make this again. Thanks and cheers!
This was a good punch for a crowd: inexpensive, tasteful, & easily modified...I added frozen raspberries & an extra bottle of champagne as well.
Delicious. I also used 2 bottles of champagne to 1 bottle of ginger ale.
I blended the strawberries first. I decided since I had a few friends over that I would just make the drinks in the glasses. I added about 1/4 champagne flute strawberry puree, filled to about 3/4 full with champagne, then topped off with the ginger ale. Everyone raved about how good this was! We were able to get about 9-10 servings with 1 750mL bottle of champagne and used only about 1/3 of the 1L ginger ale bottle. Yummy!
This was OUTSTANDING! I wouldn't change a thing. This will be a staple at every adult party we have from now on!! There was not one person at my New Year's Eve party that did not have at least 3 glasses of this. Everyone LOVED it! Happy New Year 2011
I had this for the first time at a co-workers baby shower and it was wonderful. Plan to serve it a Labor BBQ.
Easiest crowd pleaser ever! I do agree to increase the champagne amount, though. Also, if you thaw some of the strawberries a bit and mush them up with a fork, it increases the sweetness. Overall, great and inexpensive!
Refreshing and easy! I used two bottles of Andre Strawberry Champagne to each two-liter bottle of ginger ale, and made ice rings out of the strawberries and strawberry Kool-Aid. People couldn't get enough of it!
Very nice- even with adding more champage didn't taste of alcohol, nor does it really give you a buzz- great for an afternoon event, or an evening with light drinkers.
I made this just for fun when my family came to visit. Since I wasn't tryign to make an ornate presentation, I didn't bother with any sort of garnish. The punch tasted great, and I made the recipe as is. I suppose if the intention was to get tipsy, you would omit one liter of ginger ale. However, I don't like my family or myself to be tipsy when we get together, so this really worked!
it made enough for 15 people to drink...lightly. I pureed the strawberries; next time I will strain out the seeds as well. 1 2l ginger ale. I think I will use 2 DRY champagnes next time b/c it was a twee too sweet.
This was a fun New Year's Eve sipper! We used all the ginger ale to make it less potent. I would use a mix of fresh and frozen strawberries next time. The frozen ones are a little soggy.
This was a great and simple punch. I served it at a bridal shower and it was a hit. I used 1 bottle of champagne to 1 bottle of ginger ale.
This punch was okay- it didn't have a strong flavor. I used 2L of soda and a full bottle of champagn and used 10oz of frozen raspberries. It either needed more champagn to bring out the briskness in the flavor, or more soda to sweeten it up. The raspberries added a beautiful color, but didn't have a whole lot of flavor either. I would suggest using sweetened fruit, or adding something like fresh mint to liven it up a bit.
Instead of Champage I used Asti Sparkling wine, it was amazing!
I must say this is a very easy and elegant punch. The suggestions to use 1 liter to 1 750ml is helpful as is the use of whole fruit. I used a copper punch bowl when I made it for a baby shower and a crystal punch bowl when I made it for a wedding reception. Rave reviews at both!
I made this for a party and it was a hit! Everyone commented on how good it was! I doubled the champagne and made a simple syrup (1/2 c. of sugar dissolved in a 1/4 c. water) I will make this again!
I made this for a party with my friends. Everyone loved it. I put mixed berries instead of the strawberries but other than that I followed the recipe and got very good feedback on the punch.
I was having a Ladies night in and had about 20 women coming over.. Wanted something easy on the pocket book also. This is so good.. I actually mixed all liquids and the strawberries the night before and added mint leaves. Then about 3 hours before everyone showed up i took my frozen fruit ring out and let it sit and melt some.. This was great.. Great flavor! I had lots of request for the recipe.. Thanks so much !! I will keep this for ever. I loved this and i am not even a champagne person!! SO GOOD!!
This recipe is so easy, quick, and delicous! I've had tons of request for this recipe when we served it at my baby shower. But it goes really fast so make sure to have extra!
Great hit for our New Year's feast. We mixed two different types of champagne since they were left over from the night before. The longer you let the flavors meld the better it tastes.
This is an inexpensive, easy and great-tasting champagne punch that was a huge hit at a wedding reception I recently hosted. Everyone was asking for the recipe, I will definitely make this again! I used an inexpensive (but not super cheap) sweet pink Moscato champagne - 2 bottles to one 2 liter bottle of ginger ale, plus the slightly thawed frozen strawberries. I also made a non-alcoholic version substituting pink sparkling grape juice for the champagne - this was really good as well and a nice alternative.
This was a huge hit at my Girls Night holiday party. I would double next time, as we ran out pretty quickly with 9 girls. Thanks for the great recipe!
I should have followed the other suggestions and used 2 bottles of champagne to one bottle of ginger ale. It was lacking in flavor at our gathering. It was better later that evening, after the strawberries had a chance to add flavor. I did use pink champagne to give it a little color.
Yum! I made mine with 2 parts pink champagne to 1 part gingerale. Refreshing!
Quick, easy and tasty too! The girls from work alway request I make it for our parties.
I also doubled the champagne and my family loved it.
It was a HUGE hit!! It didnt really ever turn pink. I wish I would have done two bags of strawberries as suggested. But it was super yummy!
YUMMY!!! This is also a very pretty punch.
Used 1.25 liters of ginger ale, 18 oz. of frozen strawberries and a bottle of champagne. Made it for a football party and everyone loved it as a refreshing alternative to beer.
Easy and yummy! I used a clear pitcher instead of a punch bowl and served in wine glasses. I also used only one package of strawberries and 1 liter of ginger ale.
Very good. I will make this again without a doubt.
This was ok. We pureed the strawberries and left a few to float in it.
Delicious! I usually add a little more champagne, but the recipe is good either way.
very good punch but it was gone in a heartbeat! I doubled the recipe and doubled the champagne...I guess my friends just demand more alcohol! :)
really enjoyed this recipe alot and so did everyone else. My neice who is only 8 wanted to try it cause it looked so good.
Fantastic punch for a shower. Lots of raves. I a bottle and a half of ginger ale with one bottle of champagne. Frozen strawberries from BJ's. Refreshing!
This was great!! Everyone loved it. I used Brut champagne and sweetened slived strawberries. It was just perfect and not too sweet. I will definitely make this again.
This was DELICIOUS! Perfect for any occasion especially Christmas! I used a bottle of Asta Spumonta as well as a brut. The 2 worked very well together, giving this punch a little more sweetness which I prefer. Will remember this one in the future! Thank you Nicmoss; ;)) Happy NEW YEAR 2015!
Made it for the second time and the family loves it
This was a little bland for my taste. Added some cranberry juice and blackberries and that helped a little.
I made this last Thanksgiving & everyone liked it. Flavorful & fun.
Add a half gallon of line sherbet to that and now you have punch!
Easy and tastes great! Great for holiday parties.
This is super easy and delicious. Your company will love it.
I loved this recipe - I added frozen blueberries
Made this for New Year's Eve and my guests loved it. I used proseco and added about 1/4 cup of pomegranite juice, which gave it a beautiful color and a slight tartness. Will definitely make this again.
Delicious! I will make this for every party now! It was a hit!
Very easy and a really good punch. Made it over Christmas as it was warm outside!! Looked pretty too.
A great Puch with a little extra too drink
