- If you don’t have a round pan to form the ice ring, you can make wormy ice cubes. Place a gummy worm in each ice cube tray cup and fill with orange drink mix.
- Large plastic punch bowls are available at party supply stores. Make sure the top opening is at least 11 inches so that the ice ring will fit.
