Punch is always a crowd-pleasing party drink, but keeping it chilled throughout the fun can be tricky. Individual ice cubes melt quickly and tend to water down the mix, while a large citrus-speckled ice mold stays frozen longer and imparts extra flavor to the punch. You can use any ring mold or Bundt pan to freeze the ice, which doubles as an eye-catching centerpiece. Get the party started by floating this ice ring in a big batch of Cosmopolitan Fizz Punch, which combines the cosmo — a favorite ’90s cocktail — with the classic ’50s ginger ale punch for a palate-pleasing mashup that will keep you cool as the game heats up.
Begin by layering lime and orange slices in a ring mold and scattering fresh (or frozen) cranberries in between. Then mix together 3/4 cup each cranberry juice, orange juice and water, and pour the liquid over the fruit. Freeze the ring mold until firm, about 6 hours.

Not all grocery store deals are created equal. Some specials are even traps that you might not be aware of. Save money when you’re at the supermarket with these top tips.
1. Be wary of specials and deals. The pricing and signage of deals like “99 cents” makes shoppers believe they are getting a deal even when they’re not. Always check the price of single items to confirm they are in fact deals (like two for $5) before you add them to your shopping cart.
2. Skip the samples. Snacking while shopping tells your brain it’s time to eat, which may cause impulse buying. Similarly, heading to the store on an empty stomach might make you more likely to pick up items you otherwise would have left on the shelves.
