Champagne Punch

My sister is having a party and asked for this 'in'famous recipe.  I planned a surprise party for Adam's 21st birthday and this Martha Stewart punch was the star!  While we went out to dinner with his parents, my family and sorority sisters set up the party.  Little did I know that dinner would take 3 hours!  

Suffice it to say, by the time we arrived, the party was started!  The girls loved the punch and most were 'punch-drunk.'  Adam was very surprised and probably still considers this one of the highlights of his college career.  One birthday boy and all those pretty Phi Mu girls!  

Martha Stewart's Champagne Punch

Makes 2
(Me thinks this is perhaps where the potency came from- converting this recipe into punch bowl size!)

3 tablespoons grenadine
3 tablespoons Cointreau
2 tablespoons brandy
1 3/4 cups champagne
Raspberries, apples, or other seasonal fruit

Fill a small ice bucket halfway with ice. Pour grenadine, Cointreau, brandy, and champagne over ice. Stir gently, and ladle punch into 2 wide-mouthed stemmed glasses. Garnish punch with raspberries, apples, or any other fruit in season.
