A few things I found on the internet, while looking to see what I wanted to make for my table this year.  I'm always the host, and my crowd varies from about 18-26 people, depending on who's in  town each year and how many of their parents are here.  It's a mixed group of family and friends, often with my friends' family joining in so there are always new faces, and I kind of love starting off with a big bowl or pot of something to share...

If you're celebrating this weekend, have a great Holiday and enjoy! 


Here are a few links I found this year that sounded especially good:

Pear Sangria  (I'm leaning towards this one this year...)

Bourbon Spiked Hot Apple Cider (and I think this one would be good hot or cold)  http://www.vindulge.com/2014/11/bourbon-spiked-hot-apple-cider/




Champagne Punch with Ginger, Lemon and Sage 
(I'd suggest leaving the ice ring out and putting cubes on the side so that things don't get all watered down)  https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/champagne-punch-with-ginger-lemon-and-sage

The ice ring is pretty, but I agree it would water it down. That also seems like you can’t make it ahead of time- the fizz would be gone.

Yes, I made it without the ice ring and had all the parts ready so all I had to do was add the champagne when guests arrived! It was perfect :)

I used an ice bucket next to the bowl .
