Candy Cane Punch

 Candy Cane Punch
Peppermint ice cream makes this beverage taste—and look—more like a dessert than a punch! "I've mixed the sipper many times for ladies' lunches and buffets," shares Neva Schnauber of T. Collins, Colorado. "It's a great way to start a gathering." For a fun garnish, Neva adds, you can hang mini candy canes around the punch bowl and cups.
