Champagne Punch and Fleur de Champagne from The Food Network

Found these wine-cocktail recipes for Valentine's Day while surfing the Food Network.  I thought that it was worth sharing because they sound oh-so-yummy and enticing.  If anyone tries this out and wants to share on their experience, please comment below!!  (P.S. I recommend a Korbel Brut or Cava for the sparkling wine when making the Champagne Punch.)
