Served on the wedding day of cocktail luminary Sasha Petraske and his wife, journalist Georgette Moger-Petraske, this punch appears in his posthumously released recipe book Regarding Cocktails, which was completed by Moger-Petraske following his passing. She calls the punch "the month of May in a glass," but the simple, refreshing combination of elderflower liqueur, dry vermouth, and prosecco makes this gentle cocktail a year-round standby. In the colder months, opt for fresh cranberries for a seasonally-appropriate garnish.


  • 1 12 cups St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 6 cups dry vermouth, such as Dolin
  • 12-15 cups prosecco, to taste (3-4 bottles)
  • Assorted seasonal berries, for garnish
  • Orange wheels, for garnish
  • Lime wheels, for garnish
  • Lemon wheels, for garnish

Step 2

Immediately before serving, add large block of ice and garnish with citrus wheels and berries.
