“Amortentia” Love Potion Punch

Serves about 20

For ice ring:
1 pint fresh red raspberries
1 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
4 cups water, boiled and cooled
ice cubes

For punch:
1 750-ml bottle Aperol
4 cups pomegranate juice
2 cups gin
2 750-ml bottles chilled rosé sparkling wine

Spread raspberries and pomegranate seeds in the bottom of a bundt or ring cake pan. Cover fruit with a layer of ice cubes to keep it in place and pour enough boiled water over to just cover the ice (you don’t need to use all the water). Freeze overnight.

Mix Aperol, pomegranate juice, and gin together in a large punch bowl. (Optional: You can make this mixture ahead of time and chill overnight in a sealed container while the ice ring freezes.)

When you’re ready to serve the punch, sparkling wine and stir gently. Float the ice ring on top.
