Here’s how to make an easy ice ring:

You can make an easy ice ring using a ring mold or bundt pan that fits inside your punch bowl. Arrange sliced fruit or berries and mint leaves for color in the ring mold. Then add water to fill the mold 3/4 full. Freeze it until solid, unmold and place in the punch. You can use the same method using muffin cups to make floating ice disks, which take less time to freeze.
