This article is brought to you by our friends at Electrolux as part of an ongoing series focusing on seasonal ingredients for the holidays. This month, we're talking about cranberries.

Today: Make some room in your freezer -- this is the easiest way to impress your holiday guests.


The holidays are your chance to pull out all the stops. It's the season to dust off the china you tucked away from your wedding registry along with the cookie press, trifle bowl, and copper serving tray you've been hiding. It's also the time to ditch single-serving cocktails, take that punch bowl down from the top shelf, and serve your boozy drinks by the ladleful.

More: Pair your punch with one of these festive crostini.

A great holiday party is only as good as its punch, and a good punch has to be cold. You don't even need a recipe -- but you do need ice. And while you could just chuck a whole tray of ice cubes into your punch bowl, the holidays call for a little more finesse -- that's where the ice ring comes in. A glorified ice cube of sorts, it's not only practical (it keeps your punch cold without watering it down), it's also the simplest way to impress your guests.
