To make the sugar syrup- bring water and sugar to the boil in a large saucepan, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, set aside and cool.
To make ice blocks: Divide the sugar syrup equally among 3 bowls. Stir the orange juice and vodka into the 1st bowl, the lime juice and gin into the 2nd bowl and the grapefruit juice and Campari into the 3rd bowl.
Cover the mixtures and refrigerate until cold. Then churn each mixture separately in an ice cream maker until just beginning to Firm. Spoon into Lickety Sips ice block moulds. Place the sipping lids on and freeze.

KNOCKOUT PUNCHWal offers ...
In Brazil they drink cachaca which is a (usually, although it can be aged in oak) white rum from sugar cane juice (not molasses). Home Distillers can make it from raw sugar, in a 2 or 3 stage reflux still or pot still. Brazilians drink Caipirinha(little peasant girl) which is made with cachaca and resembles the above punch. It is all the rage in Europe and the U.S. now.
