How to Make a Party-Ready Ice Ring for the Punch Bowl

Cosmopolitan Fizz Punch

Punch is always a crowd-pleasing party drink, but keeping it chilled throughout the fun can be tricky. Individual ice cubes melt quickly and tend to water down the mix, while a large citrus-speckled ice mold stays frozen longer and imparts extra flavor to the punch. You can use any ring mold or Bundt pan to freeze the ice, which doubles as an eye-catching centerpiece. Get the party started by floating this ice ring in a big batch of Cosmopolitan Fizz Punch, which combines the cosmo — a favorite '90s cocktail — with the classic '50s ginger ale punch for a palate-pleasing mashup that will keep you cool as the game heats up.

Begin by layering lime and orange slices in a ring mold and scattering fresh (or frozen) cranberries in between. Then mix together 3/4 cup each cranberry juice, orange juice and water, and pour the liquid over the fruit. Freeze the ring mold until firm, about 6 hours.

In a large punch bowl, mix the remaining cranberry and orange juices with vodka and orange liqueur for a cosmo-inspired base. Unmold the ice ring (running it under a little warm water will help) and float it in the punch, adding in the ginger ale just before serving up.

Set out rocks glasses for serving and enjoy perfectly chilled, fruit-filled punch for hours on end.
