My friend Katie is a fantastic entertainer, so when I needed a good punch recipe for the shower, I knew just who to ask. Sure enough, she offered up a handful of great ideas, and we settled on the fruity little number below. She even lent me a great modern punch bowl for the day, and I liked it so much, my mom surprised me with my own identical set soon after the party (so sweet!).

Berry Sparking Punch
2 750 ml bottles of champagne, chilled
2 liters ginger ale, chilled
10 oz. package frozen strawberries or raspberries
1/2 gallon raspberry sherbet, scooped into small rounds

Combine all ingredients in a punch bowl and serve immediately.
