★ FAQs ★
How to you make the froth?
The frothy top magically appears when you combine these two ingredients. The bubbles in the ginger ale combine with the sherbet and it add a top later of yummy and pretty forth to the top without even doing anything special Pretty cool!
Want a more sophisticated flavor?
You can also add fruit juice or even fresh raspberries if you want but it's not required. Fruit juice adds a more complex flavor but does reduce the froth bit.
Here's a batch I made for my daughter's birthday party. I added a little bit of pineapple juice to this. It was delicious!
How does this pink sherbet punch taste?
Both kids and adults typically love the taste. People seem to especially admire how nice the color of the pink sherbet looks. I personally love the frothy top and smooth chunks of sherbet.
Could you make this punch blue for a boy baby shower?
Yes! This is a little harder to do because blue sherbet and blue drinks are somewhat difficult to find. However, not impossible! What I'd recommend is going for a white sherbet — either pineapple or lemon would work and then use a blue drink like blue raspberry Hawaiian punch. To get some bubbles, you can use a clear beverage like Sprite or ginger ale.
Could this punch really be made any color?
Pretty much. Don't feel like this has to be pink. You can use any color sherbet and pair it up with a bubbly beverage that would complement the flavor and/or color of the sherbet. Experiment and see what you like! I could see a fun green version for St. Patrick's day for example!
Can you spike this punch for a little extra “punch?" 😉
Be sure to keep out of reach of children of course if you choose to spike this!
Or I like to offer a bottle of vodka next to the punch for people to add their own spirit. Then they know how much alcohol is in their glass too.
I highly recommend whipped cream vodka as a mix in. The creamy tastes goes amazing well with the tangy raspberry flavor!
★ Helpful Tools for Making this Punch ★
A punch bowl is pretty key. The punch bowl you see in the photo is actually a trifle bowl. It works great as a punch bowl and will save you from having to buy another large item to store. 😛

What kind of fruit juice would you recommend?
Angela G. says
I really like pineapple juice. Or a pineapple cranberry blend is delicious!
I added floating fresh raspberries This punch was a hit with kids and adults
Angela G. says
Thanks for the feedback, Debbie! Great idea to add fresh raspberries to the punch. I'm going to have to try that next time I make it!
How many servings in this recipe?
Angela G. says
I will produce about 8-10 servings of 1 cup each. Thank for you for asking!
Hello! I was wondering what else could be used instead of raspberry ginger ale (as this is not available in Australia!). Would it be okay to use normal ginger ale and add some raspberries to the mix? Sounds yummy!
Angela G. says
This recipe is really very versatile. I've used just regular ginger ale before and I've also used ginger ale plus different types of juice before. Adding some juice gives it a richer, more opaque color which I like.
Raspberries go well with almost any other kind of fruit so you could try just about any kind of juice plus regular ginger ale or even a lemon-lime soda like Sprite would be good.
