Very easy and quite popular at the office party today. I substituted cranberry juice cocktail for most of the OJ and added about 1/3 c. of peach schnapps and one orange thinly sliced and each slice quartered to the punch bowl. 2 colleagues asked for the recipe. Next time I'll try it with the Edy's orange sherbet/vanilla ice cream instead of straight sherbet. Read More

Very tasty punch and enjoyed by many but it was quite 'frothy'--I had to constantly peel the foam from the top. I also added frpzen strawberries (highly recommended) and a portion of cranberry juice which makes the mixture less orange'y'. Read More

Excellent punch! I added a package of frozen strawberries to keep it chilled and it was also good. Will definitely make it for this New Year's again! Read More

Very delicious and easy! I made a few changes. I'm not completely crazy about all orange tastes so I added strawberries and more champagne. In addition to make it more fruity I added (believe it or not) fruit punch juicey packs (2) of them. That really gave it good "tang". I mixed all the ingredients an hour prior to serving (minus the sherbert). I let it get cold in the refrigerator. The reason I mixed it an hour prior is because I wanted the champagne to get soaked in by the strawberries. Awesome recipe and so flexible. Read More

Husband gamely volunteered to provide the drinks for a small work function then panicked because he didn't know what to do! I was relieved to learn that this recipe was a success! We made one batch as written and another with mango sorbet; used about the cheapest champagne you can get too. He was able to freeze the pitchers before the party and the punch stayed nice and cold the whole time. Great recipe Owen. Thanks so much! Read More

Very Good! 2 bottles of champagne was more than we could drink so I made it with 1 and it was very easy to scale down. Read More
