How to Make an Ice Ring

Layer fruits such as cherries or citrus slices and some of your punch an inch at a time in a ring mold. Freeze each layer before adding the next.

By using punch instead of water your punch won't get diluted as it melts.

Tip: If you run out of ice cube trays - use your Styrofoam egg cartons.
