  • MAKE-AHEAD

Agostino Perrone, head mixologist at London's luxurious Connaught Bar, created this simple sparkling punch. "It would be a great aperitif for a large dinner party," says Wayne Collins; he recommends serving it in teacups.

  1. 16 ounces Galliano (Italian herbal liqueur)
  2. One 750-ml bottle Aperol (bitter orange Italian aperitif)
  3. Three 750-ml bottles chilled Prosecco
  4. Ice, preferably 1 large block
  5. 2 sliced oranges, 2 sliced lemons and 1/2 pint raspberries, for garnish
  1. In a punch bowl, combine the Galliano and Aperol and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours. Gently stir in the Prosecco. Add the ice and garnish with the oranges, lemons and raspberries.
