Raspberry Sherbet Party Punch

This Sherbet Party Punch is perfect for potlucks, baby showers & Valentines Day! @natashaskitchen

This party punch is so pretty and refreshing. It is perfect for baby showers, church potlucks, Valentines day parties and family get-togethers.

It’s a showy punch and your guests will be intrigued by the fizz, colorful floating fruit and sherbet of course. My sister Sveta frequently brings her version of this sherbet punch to parties and it’s always a hit.

You can easily cut the entire recipe in half for a smaller crowd. It is simple to assemble and you can pre-scoop and freeze your ice cream balls in advance – remember that Instagram post I shared? This is what the ice cream was for! 🙂

How to Make Raspberry Sorbet Party Punch:

1. Pre-scoop ice cream and place on a baking dish lined with plastic wrap. Freeze and add ice cream just before serving so it remains frozen in the punch.

3. Add pineapple slices and raspberries if using and top with scooped sherbert just before serving. The ice cream will keep it chilled. Add cold water or ice if desired to control how sweet your punch is.

Note: once the ice cream melts, the punch will be sweeter.

    How much does this make? We are having a shower on Saturday for 30 people. Would one batch be enough or should I double it? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      August 14, 2018

      This recipe makes 18-20 cups 🙂 So doubling it may be a good idea since most go for seconds. Unless you plan on have other drinks there. I hope this helps Reply

      Hi Judy, I do scoop the ice cream and freeze so it is easier to add later. The only part I would also not mix in ahead of time is the soda so it does not lose it’s fizz 🙂 Reply

    The punch turned out so yummy and pretty! It was perfect for a baby shower and everyone loved it. Had a difficult time finding solid sherbet flavors in California so used very berry sherbet. Reply

    If I am going to use only one 2-liter of club soda & one 2-liter of Sprite, would I only use half (6oz) of the concentrated juice cans or go ahead and use the whole thing ? Going to make this for an office valentines party. Reply

    I made this pink punch for my daughter’s 6th “Pinkalicious” (it’s a series of books) themed birthday party. I used two cans of frozen pink lemonade. It was pretty tart, so I added a red Solo cup of water to water it down, which helped. I couldn’t find frozen pineapple juice. We served the punch in tea cups and our party goers seemed to enjoy it. Reply

  • Holly
    July 14, 2017

    This looks so delish! Do you freeze the pineapple chunks also or just the raspberries? I’m thinking of making small scoops of the raspberry sherbet and putting them into a mini muffin tin so there are more of them to go around, anyone ever tried it that way? I don’t want it to be too sweet, do you think diet sprite or gingerale would be good? Thanks! Reply

    • Natasha

      July 14, 2017

      Hi Holly, you could do it either way but I do love your idea of freezing the pineapple. It would keep the punch cooler longer 🙂 I also like your idea of using the mini muffin tin and making smaller scoops. I think diet sprite or gingerale would work 🙂 Reply

      Hi Trish, I would make the punch juice portion then ladle into individual glasses. Add fruit to individual glasses and just before serving, top with a small scoop of ice cream. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 3, 2016

      Hi Samantha, you could lay them out on parchment or wax paper as well :). I haven’t tried substituting with ginger ale, but keep in mind if you try it that ginger ale is very sweet whereas club soda has no sugar in it so your punch would probably end up overly sweet. This is why I would recommend club soda instead of ginger ale. Reply

    I love this recipe! I made it for the first time this weekend at my daughters sprinkle. I got Raspberry Vodka that Stefanie Berger recommended and kept it on the side for adults. I also made an ice mold with ginger ale and some raspberries which helped to keep it really cold for a long time. I used ginger ale because I didn’t have any of the other sodas left but it turned out beautifully!!! Also used canned crushed pineapple instead of the rings. Reply

    October 23, 2016

    Hi! This recipe sounds great! I was at the grocery store last night looking for the ingredients. They did not have any frozen canned fruit punch or pineapple juice. Would it be OK to use the regular 64 oz non-frozen/non-concentrated containers of fruit punch and pineapple juice? If so, how much? If no, then would it be better to use the 2 cans of frozen pink lemonade instead? Any help is appreciated! Thank you! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 23, 2016

      Hi Hill, you could use 2 frozen pink lemonade cans or 1 lemonade and another frozen juice flavor variety. Using the non-conentrated juice would water down your punch since the proportion of fizzy liquid with regular juice would be altered. Enjoy! Reply

      I’m so happy to hear you liked it! We love it too. Next, you should consider the no cry gloves. We recently discovered them and they make the slicing so much safer (My hubby hurt his finger on a slicer recently and that’s why we were looking into it). It’s so nice for the mandoline, julienne slicer and grater. My son puts them on too when he insists on helping with the grater. 🙂 I’m doing a giveaway for them in this months email newsletter: https://madmimi.com/p/01aed5?fe=1&pact=28157682881 Reply
