Floating Four-Leaf Clovers

Instead of using regular ice cubes in your party punch, stay in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day and prepare these cute clover cubes. They're made with soda so they won't dilute your beverage. They can be made weeks in advance and stored in the freezer. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    erin07 - These are called "four-leaf clovers" as in "lucky four-leaf clovers" not as in shamrocks; and as everyone knows, clover only has three leaves, but if you find one with four leaves it's lucky. Also, these are cute no matter what you call them.
