– If you don’t have any pomegranate seeds, you can substitute 1/2 cup of fresh raspberries or blueberries.

– You can adjust the amount of fruit and juice to your taste.

– For a stronger punch, add more white wine or champagne.

– Be sure to use chilled champagne or sparkling wine, as this will help to keep the punch cold.
