This is a great punch for young and old. This recipe came to us by one of our girl scout leaders many years ago and the family has been using it ever since! We put maraschino cherries in the bottom of the round gelatin mold, add water and freeze. Float the ice in the punch upside down and the cherries make it festive! Great for any occasion!
