While punch is traditionally made with spirits, adding some champagne to the drink can give it that extra oomph. These are the ten best champagne punch recipes you need to try this Christmas.

How to make champagne punch

Punch was created by British sailors in the East India Trading Company in an attempt to weaken the rum when they ran out of wine and beer.

These days, there are plenty of ways to mix up the drink and there’s no doubt you will find a combination that you like.

Once you have chosen your preferred ingredients, the punch-making process is incredibly simple. Simply combine your ingredients in a jug or bowl, give it a good stir and serve chilled.
