This is the companion ice ring for Sparkling Party Punch (non-alcoholic), posted here at Recipezaar. I have, on occasion, replaced one lemon with a small orange to give it a very colourful look. Prep time includes overnight freezing, although this will last in the freezer for a few days.

Directions

  1. It is best if the lime is as close in size to the lemons as possible.
  2. Cut lemons and lime in half lengthwise; with cut side down, cut into 1/4-inch slices.
  3. You will need a ring mold, preferably the kind with grooves in the bottom-- I use my tupperware jello mold and it's perfect.
  4. With the rind edge down, stand slices up around circle-- 1 lime, 2 lemon, 1 cherry, 2 lemon, all close together.
  5. Repeat five more times.
  6. Pour in enough water to be 1/2-inch deep.
  7. Freeze.
  8. When frozen, pour in an inch more water; freeze.
  9. When frozen, repeat.
  10. Keep doing this until mold is full.
  11. The reason you do this in stages is to prevent the fruit from floating.
  12. To unmold, run cold water over the bottom; it will then slip out.
  13. Place round side up in punch-- preferably Sparkling Party Punch (non-alcoholic), posted as a separate recipe here at Recipezaar(#24691).
