Made this especially to serve a monthly group I host & was intrigued with the idea that it's actually frozen until almost ready to use AND, now that it's made, I can tell you it's A GREAT TASTING PUNCH, too! I'm a big fruit cocktail fan, & enjoyed the making of this fruit 'concentrate!' [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbooks tag]
