Ingredients You'll Need
2 cans (12 oz each) pink lemonade concentrate, thawed and divided
6 cups water, divided

Place lemon slices about 1 inch apart over frozen lemonade. Place raspberries between slices. Pour remaining 1 cup lemonade over fruit. Cover and freeze until firm.

Dip ice mold into warm water 15 seconds to release ring. Place ice ring in punch bowl. Add soda; stir until blended. Serve immediately.
