Tips and Variations
How to Make a Fruit-Filled Fancy Ice Ring - Combine the punch ingredients as directed in the recipe. Layer slices of fresh oranges and lemons in a ring mold. If desired add berries with a contrasting color, such as red grapes or blueberries. Other possible additions: sliced kiwi, mint leaves, violets, rose petals, or pansies Fill the ring just level with the fruit with the punch mixture. Or use water if you prefer.
