pink party punch | styleberryPARTY Pt. 5

The perfect party punch. Ice cold. Sweet. Fizzy. That pretty much covers it. Oh, and PINK!


This party punch has been a family staple for as long as I can remember. Holidays, birthdays, events & gatherings…all had one thing in common: my mom’s pink sherbet punch. The best part is—it’s the easiest thing ever. Three ingredients. Proportions to your likings. & you can substitute all you wish. Here’s how we do it:



  • two- 2 liter bottles of Sprite or 7up, cold
  • 1 can of Cran Raspberry Juice Concentrate (found in the frozen foods section by the OJ from concentrate), thawed
  • raspberry sherbet (I’ll use about 1/3 of a gallon)


  1. Refrigerate 7up/Sprite & thaw juice concentrate for several hours before the party.
  2. About 10 minutes before guests arrive, mix juice concentrate & 7up/Sprite. Stir.
  3. Scoop sherbet into the punch bowl & watch it get foamy & pretty!

Substitutions in a pinch:

Any red juice base will work & so will any flavor of pink-ish sherbet.We were unable to find the ingredients at any grocery store in Louisiana, so I subbed this batch with a cranberry juice concentrate base & cherry/limeade sherbet. It was still yummy! & big thanks to Emily–this is her pretty punch bowl!

You can add/subtract ingredients if you are feeling saucy. Pineapple. Coconut. Lime. You could even spike it if  you’re in the mood. ;) The possibilities are endless!


Now what I would love is a yummy blue punch recipe…it was a good thing she is having a girl! Any ideas?

  • Denae - You can do the same punch with any sherbet. Lime is my favorite. I also love using the fruity sangria mixes with ginger ale for non-alcoholic cocktails.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - I did a blue punch for my sister’s baby shower a couple of years ago. Everyone loved it.
      I used Blue Hawaiian Punch, White Grape Juice, 2lt Sprite, and Pineapple Sherbet.
      We went through 2 batches and people wanted more. Very tasty and a pretty blue too!
      She’s expecting a girl this time so now we’re doing a pink punch.ReplyCancel

  • Marilee - I went to a shower where they had a blue punch with blue Koolaid, sugar, white cranberry juice, Sprite and Vanilla ice cream. It was cute as the Vanilla ice cream looked like clouds! Not as healthy probably with the Koolaid, but until they make a blueberry type juice concentrate it works!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - I do a very similar punch, except with Ginger ale instead of Sprite so its not quite as sweet. I use different colors/flavors of sherbet depending on the theme and colors of the party. I like your idea of adding the cranberry juice! Yum.ReplyCancel

  • Melissa Ryan - My mom makes this punch too! We call it the shower punch :-) She added frozen raspberries to the mix as well. If it is a bridal shower, she throws in some vodka too!ReplyCancel

  • Melanie - I’ve grown up having party punch!! Except my mom uses 1 frozen pink lemonade concentrate to 1 2Liter-sprite and then I live a combo of orange/pineapple/raspberry sherbet.ReplyCancel

  • Stacey - I did not care for this punch. :( Sorry. Too much cranberry or raspberry, I don’t know. It wasn’t creamy like I was hoping either.ReplyCancel

    • -shawna- - hm. strange. Did you add enough sprite? & sherbet? If the proportions are off, I see how you could run into this problem!ReplyCancel

  • Tracy McPherson - This looks good but what about a Pineapple Sherbet added too it? Think it would be good for flavor but not color, always food coloring… :-)ReplyCancel

  • Danielle - Hello, I made your punch recipe today for a baby shower and everyone loved it. I used two containers of raspberry sherbert. I will be making this again!! :)ReplyCancel
