Want to keep your punch bowl drinks from becoming watered down from melting ice? Try this handy trick:
Fill a metal bowl* halfway with water then drop in several thin slices of lime, lemon, or other complementary flavored citrus fruit. Freeze for 4 hours or until frozen solid. When it's frozen, add more citrus fruit slices, fill to the top with water and refreeze. To unmold right before serving, run the bowl upside down under warm water. (Be ready to catch the ice block as it slides free of the bowl!) Place this citrus ice in your punch bowl to keep your drinks fresh and flavorful!
*Make sure the metal bowl you use will fit inside the punch bowl and still allow ample room for your drink.
