Citrus Champagne Punch

I have no need to make anything like this right now, but I’m drooling over this Citrus Champagne Punch from Emeril Lagasse.

    * 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
    * 2/3 cup superfine sugar
    * 1 cup vodka
    * 1/2 cup limoncello
    * 2 teaspoons vermouth
    * 1 (750 ml) bottle chilled dry Champagne or sparkling wine
    * Ice
    * Lemon twists, for garnish

Combine the lemon juice, sugar, vodka, Limoncello, and vermouth in a large nonreactive bowl and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, 1 to 2 hours. Add the Champagne and stir to combine.
Serve over ice in highball glasses, garnished with lemon twists.
Hmmm, my lemon bush is full of lemons right now….
