This is actually a Christmas punch as it has peppermint ice cream, which is usually a seasonal ice cream, but if you can get it in February, this is great for Valentine's Day. Makes a beautiful pretty pink presentation! Yummy!!
In a saucepan, melt jelly with two cups of the soda. Chjill the jelly mixture and remaining soda. Just before serving, place 6 cups ice cream in a punch bowl. Gently stir in the jelly mixture. Add remaining soda. Add remaining ice cream by scoopfuls. Garnish with miniature candy canes, if desired (if making for Christmas).
