Ice Ring Finesse


Fruited Ice Ring:
1-1/2 to 2 cups fresh orange juice
1/2 cup cranberry juice
7 to 8 seedless red grape clusters (five or six grapes in each cluster)
10 to 12 orange slices, seeds removed
8 to 10 whole strawberries
mint sprigs


1. Mix the juices in a small container; set aside.

2. Line the bottom of a 6 cup ring mold with the grape clusters and half of the orange slices, using the grape clusters as a base for the orange slices. Pour half of the juices into the mold and freeze until set.

3. Place the remaining orange slices, the strawberries, and mint sprigs into the mold and top with the remaining juice mixture. Let freeze overnight.

4. To remove the ice mold, place the bottom part of the mold into a pan of warm water for 8 to 10 seconds to loosen; repeat as necessary (using a warm towel atop the mold to help loosen) invert onto a plate and slip into the punch of your choice.
