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.

    Hi, This looks amazing. I cant find sherbet ice cream. Can i substitute with sorbet? Can I make ahead and add sherbet just before serving?

      Hi Melissa! I don’t recommend making this to far in advance because the soda will loose it’s carbonation the longer it sits out and become flat. Sorbet will work, but I like to use sherbet because it’s more creamy.

    Hi! I love this for a baby girl shower. What would you recommend for a blue or green punch? Have you tried using Hawaiian Punch to substitute to make it blue for a baby boy shower?

      Hi Lacey! I have not tested any substitutes but feel free to experiment with the recipe. You can reference my images above to see what I used, I am not sure if Hawaiian Punch comes in the frozen concentrate cans but if they do, that should work just fine.

    Hi Natasha, love all your recipes! We’ve made this punch before and loved it!! We want to make it again but put it in a covered beverage container with a spout instead of a punch bowl. Would that work?

      Hi Wendy! So glad you loved it. This works best in a punch bowl because of the chunks of fruits.

    Did you use *sherbet or *ice cream? You seem to use both words throughout the instructions. I don’t know if there’s a shortage because of the pandemic (??) but no one is carrying raspberry sherbet in my area, but I want to make this for my DIL baby shower.

      Hi Kimberly, sherbet falls in between sorbet and ice cream. Since it contains dairy, so it is called sherbert ice cream, so we used both names for it since it is ice cream.

    I’ll be making this for a Sprinkle this Sunday. I’m trying to determine the size needed for the punch bowl. I’ve calculated the number of cups for the liquid ingredients + 2 cans of frozen lemonade (12 oz Each). How many cups would you estimate for the sherbert? I’m concerned the bowl will be too full + the ladle may cause the punch to rise.
    Thank you. Love your recipes & tips.

      The Sherbert does not have to be exact, its more of a tasty garnish than anything else. I would add the sherbert after the liquid is in the punch bowl and if you feel like its too full just pour some into an extra container and then add the sherbert. You can always add the extra liquid back in as people are served and there is more room in the bowl.

    So, the 2 cans of juice are frozen concentrate?

    When I add the cans of juice do I follow the directions on the can by adding “3 cans of water” THEN add the soda? Or is the soda substituting the water?

      Hi Jennifer, the soda replaces the water. We did not use the canned juice instructions.

      Hi Yole, I’ve never tried making it into an adult version. One of our readers wrote the following ” I made 4 batches of this tonight also added vodka and put the sherbet in the muffin pan just like you did. Turned out great! My family loved it.” I hope that helps.

      Hi Jessie, you can definitely experiment with different brands and even different juices. These are our go-to’s but there’s room to experiment. In the photo I used an apple-cherry blend (shhh!) I do love the pineapple though so I would recommend that one.
