Years ago I spotted a pretty punch bowl in an antique store, and fell in love with it. I told my hubby that I wanted it for Christmas. He said "Why, you don't ever make punch."
And I said" That's because I don't have a punch bowl!".
The rest is history, of course.
The punch bowl sat on a smaller bowl for a pedestel and had matching cups, with hooks to mount them on the side of the bowl.
I always made punch during the holidays because it was something special and non alcoholic for the kids, and of course for the adults you could add some "cheer".
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Not only does this punch have a great flavor, but it's also downright gorgeous! The fruit/ice ring is a terrific idea for any special occasion and can be adjusted to fit the event and the ingredients you have on hand. Have fun!
