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
* 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….
