Spiked Party Punch

This easy, low-alcohol punch stays chilled as the decorative ice ring floats around the bowl. As it melts, raspberries and lemon slices are released, adding flavor and a healthy, edible garnish.

Fruity Ice Ring

  • 1 small lemon, halved and thinly sliced

  • ½ cup raspberries

  • 1 cup cold water, plus more as needed


  • 5 cups chilled seltzer

  • 4 cups 100%-juice cranberry-raspberry juice

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

  • 1 cup vodka


  1. Arrange lemon slices and raspberries decoratively in a 5-cup ring mold. Add 1 cup cold water; place in the freezer until frozen, about 1 1/2 hours. Add more cold water until the mold is three-quarters full. Return the mold to the freezer.

  2. When the ice ring is completely frozen (about 1 hour), stir seltzer, juice, lemonade concentrate and vodka together in a punch bowl.

  3. Soak a dish towel in hot water and wrap the bottom of the mold with the towel. Invert the mold onto a baking sheet, then place the ice ring, fruit-side up, in the punch bowl. (Alternatively, fill a large bowl with warm water and dip the ring mold until edges of the ice release.)

To make ahead

Freeze ice ring (Step 1) for up to 2 months.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
