If you're planning a New Year's eve party at home, you've got to have some bubbly for a midnight toast.
You could just buy a case of Champagne, or you could make Emeril's awesome Champagne punch.
The punch uses two bottles of Champagne, sugar, fresh orange and lemon juice, Grand Marnier, triple sec, and cognac and is garnished with fresh fruit and strawberries. It's a colorful way to ring in the New Year and can also be served at your New Year's Day
brunch to soothe away any residual hangovers.
Emeril, himself, shows us how to make the punch. Watch closely, because the celebrity chef's version of a recipe is "a little here", "a pinch there", and a boatload of Grand Marnier!
