Food & Wine's Justin Chapple shows us a mad genius use for a standard bundt pan.
The last you wanna do at your next party is get stuck mixing drinks all night. Instead, make a big batch of sangria punch. But you have to remember, you don't wanna add little ice to your punch because when you add it to the bowl, it's gonna melt quickly and it's gonna dilute the beverage. So I have a secret for you. Use an ice ring. [MUSIC] The first thing I'm gonna to do is just sprinkle your berries in to the bottom of your **** pan. I'm using berries but you can use citrus, you can use apples and oranges. I like to give it a little shake. Then you're just gonna take some distilled water and you wanna pour enough to cover the berries. So once you've got your water in your **** pan, you're gonna go ahead and pop this in the freezer. I'd say about eight hours, maybe overnight until it's nice and firm. Alright, I have my bundt fresh out of the freezer, I'm gonna dip the bundt pan in a bowl of hot water, nice and gentle, you can hear that crack. Let it float in there for five seconds, and, out. Then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna invert A baking sheet on top. And we're gonna flip it out. [MUSIC] Do you hear that? Look at this incredible ring of berries. I mean, look at this. It's not only beautiful, but it's gonna keep your big batch of sangria extra cold. Let's go ahead and add it to our sangria. Now, as this ice ring slowly melts, all of those berries are going to slowly infuse this cocktail and it's gonna get better and better and better Because I can't wait. I'm gonna go head and taste it now. I'm gonna go in here and I'm gonna relax because I know that my ring of ice is gonna keep my cocktail cold all night long. [MUSIC]
