Baby showers are great occasions for a fancy punch. It allows the Mom-to-Be to enjoy a fancy drink without alcohol, and helps to encourage guests to serve themselves. This would also be a great punch recipe for Mother’s Day too!
The punch is kept cold by creating an ice ring, made from juice, mint and fruit, in a standard size bundt pan. Just be sure the pan fits in your punch bowl. This is the best way to assure the ice ring will too!
It needs to freeze overnight, but that’s the most time consuming part. The rest is so easy. Just fill your tin with juice and your fruit and mint and freeze. It will keep your punch cold through out the party and as it melts it won’t be watered down.
It also makes for a nice centerpiece item as guests arrive, place their gifts and serve themselves!
