"A clear, golden sparkly punch. This makes 18 - 5 ounce glasses. I suggest you plan on several glasses per person unless many guests are teetotalers. I was greatly embarrassed to see how quickly it was disappearing, and ended up with a greatly diluted version before long. I just had to keep adding regular white wine to the mix when the second batch started to empty out. Punch is not hugely popular here, but it certainly was that night!"

  1. In a saucepan, combine pumpkin pie spice and orange zest to apple juice concentrate. Bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. In a large pitcher, combine spiced apple juice concentrate and white wine. Chill in refrigerator overnight.
  2. Strain the wine mixture through a coffee filter, being careful not to disturb the spices which have settled to the bottom of the pitcher.
  3. Just before serving, slide in the ice ring. Slowly pour the champagne down the side of the bowl to retain as much carbonization as possible.
  4. To make Ice Ring: In a ring shaped mold, combine pineapple chunks, orange slices and maraschino cherries. Pour in just enough water to hold the fruit together in the ring. freeze overnight.

I sampled this before putting it on the Halloween menu and it is great! I don't even like pineapple normally.

We made this without the ice ring (poor planning). It was really troublesome getting the coffee filter to work as a strainer and in the end it took a really long time to prepare. I don't think...

Too sweet and savory for my taste. The combinations just didn't work.

This recipe was a great hit and I plan on using it again....next week in fact. I will use only two tablespoons of the spice this time and I agree that the coffee filter does not work very well ...
