I just found the cutest idea that I am going to use for Christmas Eve. It's called a Festive Punch Ring. It is super easy and will take your Holiday beverages from average to awesome! You could easily alter this to fit any holiday by varying the items you freeze. Cranberries would still be beautiful for Thanksgiving and you could just omit the mint. You could even add some pretty sliced oranges to make it more Fall looking.
Festive Punch Ring
1 large freezer-safe Bundt pan or ring mold
1 (12-ounce) bag of fresh Cranberries
Fresh mint leaves, if desired
Water or Oceanspray White Cranberry Juice
Rinse cranberries in cold water. Drain.
Fill pan 1/2-inch to 1-inch deep with water. Place on even surface in freezer and freeze until solid. Remove pan from freezer. Add an additional 1/4-inch water over the ice surface. Arrange cranberries and mint leaves into desired pattern then return pan to freezer. Once set, add an additional 1/2-inch to 1-inch of water and freeze until solid. To unmold, run briefly under warm water to loosen. Float in punch bowl with desired party punch.
*Cranberries float, so if you add all the water at once, the cranberries will float to the surface. When you unmold the frozen ring, the decoration will be on the bottom of the ring. *
