The Party-Punch Ice Ring

Spring welcomes a host of celebratory worthy affairs. From bridal showers to garden parties, each deserves a special sipper that calls to be served in punch cups. If traditional glasses are difficult to locate, a modern wine glass with simple, clean lines can be used as they are low & wide with approximately an 8-oz capacity. To keep the beverage well chilled during the gathering, a beautiful ice ring can be prepared in advance & added to the punch bowl just before guests arrive. Ice rings can be molded in just about anything & a good one need not be complex. A variety of bright seasonal fruits, berries & even fresh herbs can be arranged in the container then filled with anything from lemonade to juices. Once frozen & added to the punch bowl, the ice ring not only maintains the temperature, but it gently flavors the sipper further as it melts. Learn how to make the quintessential accessory to any afternoon reception, the party-punch ice ring.

1 large lemon, thinly sliced

Arrange the lemon slices & the strawberries in a decorative pattern in a 14-cup bundt cake pan. Carefully pour the lemonade down the side of the inside of the pan to keep the design in place. Freeze the mixture 12 hours. Fill a large prep bowl halfway up the sides with hot water. Submerge the base of the bundt pan in the water until the ice ring begins to loosen from the sides.
