This ring looks great in the punch and helps keep it cold for a really long time. My punch had pineapple juice in it so I added a bit to the ring as well as pineapple chunks and cherries. Tip: make sure the serving scoop for your punch bowl fits through the center of the ring and make sure the ring fits easily in your punchbowl. Try it before you make the ring, otherwise you could have problems serving. I don't make punch often, but mine will have a ring like this from now on.
I've seen these pretty rings at parties and I never thought I could make one that was equally attractive. In fact, I made two for graduation brunch and they were beautiful! I used a variety of decorations - mostly red berries and green mint leaves to compliment Kim Hansen's San Francisco Marriott's Pink Punch #96989 (which turned out more red than pink). Thanks for making me looks so good!
I love making ice rings to go along with my food or party them. You can freeze almost anything in ice to add charm to your punch. If you don't want ginger-ale you can subsitute lemon-lime or other beverages.
