Festive Ice Ring

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + freezing


1 ice ring

Use this colorful, fruit-filled ice ring from our Test Kitchen to keep your favorite punch cold during a holiday party.


  • 5 cups water, divided
  • Assorted fruit (cranberries, cherries, orange and lemon slices)
  • Mint sprigs


  1. Lightly coat a decorative tube cake pan or gelatin mold with cooking spray; add 1/2 cup of water. Arrange fruit and mint in pan as desired. Freeze until solid.
  2. Gently add remaining water; arrange more fruit and mint as desired. Freeze until ready to use.
  3. To unmold, wrap bottom of solidly frozen mold in a warm towel until loosened, or dip mold in a pan of warm water. Float ice ring, fruit side up, in a bowl of cold punch.
<b>Editor’s Note:</b> If preparation time for the ice ring is short, add all the water to the pan, then arrange the fruit on top. Freeze until solid.
