"Triple Birthday Bash" | Recipe | Champagne Punch Signature Drink

Before my brother and sister-in-law moved to Paris, they sent Mr. Stranded and me home with the contents of their liquor cabinet.  We easily received 20 different bottles of alcohol.  We don't normally drink hard alcohol, but the contribution to our liquor cabinet has greatly enhanced the drink situation at our parties!

We mixed a new punch that we affectionately named the Triple Birthday Bash because we were celebrating the birthdays of three special people and this punch contains three different varieties of alcohol.  Clever, eh?  This was the perfect punch for a lunch party.  It wasn't too sweet, nor too strong.  I certainly didn't want our guests stumbling home after lunch.  It was enjoyed by all and next time we may need to double the recipe!
