Recipe by Nat Da Brat

Start the day before by freezing 1" of liquid in the ice ring pan. Making the wreath takes about 15-20 minutes. Then another several hours to freeze the second layer of liquid. The wreath will last in the freezer for a day or two before the mint leaves wilt.


  1. In 1-qt measure or pitcher, combine ginger ale and lemon juice.
  2. Pour 2 C of the mixture into 1-qt ring mold; freeze.
  3. Arrange fruits, peel, and mint leaves in decorative pattern on top of frozen ring.
  4. Carefully pour remaining liquid over patterns and freeze.
