Champagne Punch Bellini is the pretty drink you need for Christmas or New Years Eve. This is a simple way to make champagne punch without a punch bowl – make individual cocktails with that classic flavor! I think prettier drinks just taste better…or maybe that’s just me.

What is a Champagne Bellini?
It was then that I realized that a champagne bellini is pretty much just champagne (or sparkling wine or prosecco) and fruit nectar. Sometimes people add other liqueurs, like schnapps. But really, a bellini is fruit + champagne. And since they don’t have to be peach, then you can make them any flavor.
I normally see the punch version of this cocktail at New Year’s Eve parties and baby showers, or sometimes bridal showers. Basically it’s a container of sherbet or sorbet floated in a punch bowl with champagne and sometimes lemon-lime soda.
When I decided to make these Raspberry flavor, I added sorbet to the champagne flute, which is how you make champagne punch. Hence the name: Champagne Punch Bellini!
What’s in Champagne Punch?
(Why people water down champagne with soda, I’ll never know, ha!)
While I love a large punch, sometimes you don’t need that much cocktail, and I hate wasting champagne. That’s why my Champagne Punch Bellini is the perfect party drink.
Basically, this cocktail has two ingredients:
- Champagne or Prosecco (or sparkling wine) – use a good brand. We love La Marca.
- Sorbet or Sherbet – Raspberry or strawberry or any flavor you like.
Like a belllini, you can add any fruit to champagne, so pick your favorite sorbet or sherbet. Garnish with fruit!
Raspberry champagne punch is the most logical one to make, because raspberry sorbet is the most prominent one I’ve found. But now that there are all sorts of fun ice cream and sorbet flavors out there, you can pick any flavor you want! I think these would be fantastic with lemon sorbet or mango!
How do you make a simple champagne punch with sherbet or sorbet?
- Just pour a glass of champagne or Prosecco and add a tablespoon scoop of your favorite sorbet flavor. Garnish with fruit. Serve.
Easiest. Cocktail. EVER – And it’s the prettiest!
No it doesn’t! I use the two interchangeably. Champagne is from France, Prosecco is from Italy. Yes, they have different tastes – so it’s all about personal preference. I, personally, prefer Prosecco because it’s less sweet than champagne. Your choice, use what you love.
Just add the entire bottle of champagne to a pitcher or punch bowl and add a container of sorbet or sherbet.
