DIRECTIONS

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