This frothy pink punch made with sherbet is one of my favorite easy party drinks.
Celebrating a special occasion?
It’s the perfect punch for a baby shower! It’s also a fun punch to make for Valentine’s Day, a girlie princess birthday party, or for a bridal shower.
I’m guessing you’re here because you’re…
Wondering what drinks to serve at a baby shower, birthday, or some type of party?
Am I right? 🙂 I’m glad you’re considering a punch, because a punch can be made in large batches, perfect for serving a crowd.
Or maybe you’ve already decided on punch and you’re going with pink decor for your baby shower or party.
This pink sherbet punch is going to be perfect!
This punch is really easy to make.
It’s is only TWO ingredients—Sherbet and ginger ale. The frothy top magically appears when you combine these ingredients. 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!
This pretty sherbet punch complements any party decor that incorporates pink.
I made this punch for my daughter’s first birthday party. I used the colors pink and green to decorate, so the pink punch added to the theme, serving as a fun and pretty treat. Are you planning an event with pink as the main color? This punch would fit right in then. 🙂
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!
You can 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 you can add some spirit after your pour the punch into your cup. I highly recommend whipped cream vodka. The creamy tastes goes amazing well with the tangy raspberry flavor.
This sherbet punch recipe is an oldie but goodie!
This recipe is inspired by my grandma. She always made a similar punch using rainbow sherbet for our holiday parties. I could always be found by the punch bowl, refilling my cup with the creamy, bubbly punch. 🙂 Why not keep a good thing going, right?
What do you need to make this pink punch for a baby shower or party?
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. 😛
Here are some other supplies you may need:
- Punch Ladle
- Punch bowl– If you want the real deal 😉
- Trifle Dish
- Sherbet Scoop
- Mason jar mugs (These would be cute party favors)
- Pink Paper Straws
