For this delicious and refreshing rose punch, use a big rose from Spain or South America, like Bodega Inurrieta's Mediodia Rosado from Navarra, Spain.

It makes for a wonderful base for practically any mixed drink, including our rose punch, concocted from sparkling lemonade, Chambord, raspberries, pineapple, and, of course, rose wine. The best part is, you can make it ahead and chill, then set it out for shower guests to enjoy.

Fold in half and make a loose knot. Slip knot over skewer and tighten. Notch ribbon ends.
