Recipes for Holiday Punch: Grape Sparkle with Nettle


| November/December 2005


Serves 16

Sweet and elegant, this beverage makes a fun alternative to wine or champagne. The berry sorbet is a perfect complement to the grape juice, and ginger ale or ginger beer adds a little fizz.

• 3 tablespoons dried nettle
• 4 cups hot water
• 8 cups grape juice
• 1 liter ginger ale or ginger beer
• Berry sorbet or sherbet
• Fresh fruit, for garnish, if desired

1. Steep nettle in hot water for 1 hour, then strain. Combine nettle tea and grape juice in a large container and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.



2. Add ginger ale or ginger beer just before serving. Drop scoops of sorbet or sherbet in punch bowl.

3. Serve in a wineglass or champagne flute over ice and garnish with fresh fruit pierced with a toothpick.
