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.
