Whether it’s a bridal shower, church luncheon, family reunion or any get together of all kinds, my Sherbet Punch Recipe is the perfect beverage to serve. It can be served with or without alcohol (sherbet punch), depending on the occasion, location and the type of guests.

The first time I had a sherbet punch was for my very special bridal shower. I was surrounded by my closest friends and family members who made me feel beyond loved. And let me tell you, these ladies can have a good time.

Ingredients

Typical rainbow sherbet punches only have a few key ingredients such as the following:

  • Sherbet
  • Lemonade
  • Limeade
  • Soda
  • Confectioner’s Sugar
  • Various fruits
  • Alcohol (optional)

For the Sherbet, it is best to use rainbow so you have a ton of wonderful flavors floating around however you can totally just use one single flavor like orange, raspberry or lime.

For most sherbet punches, using the lemonade and limeade concentrate is best because it is packed with intense flavor and super cold right out of the freezer so you don’t have to add ice to your drink.  It stays cold on its own.

The carbonation of the soda is what makes the punch even better which is why I add it.  I also add various fruit for more flavor and the beauty.  It makes it look just gorgeous!!!  Perfect for entertaining!

How to Make Sherbet Punch

This is such a fun hack and twist on a traditional punch. The elements of the punch are similar to that of classic punches with the additions of pink lemonade, concentrate, lemon lime soda and pineapple juice but it gets super fun and different with the addition of alcohol and gorgeous scoops of colorful sherbet swirling about in the punch bowl.

Add all of the ingredients together and allow them to truly mix perfectly.

Tip: You can also make all of the ingredients come together in a theme that works best for you.

It is such a super cute drink too. I love the bright pink color of the punch, and the beautiful colors of sherbet swirling through the punch take it up a notch. This would be perfect for serving at any bridal shower this summer. I can guarantee a good time had by all, especially the bride.

How to Store 

  • Airtight Container: Pour the frappe punch into an airtight container. This helps to keep out air and contaminants that could spoil the punch or alter its taste.
  • Refrigeration: Store the container in the refrigerator. Frappe punch should be kept cold to maintain its freshness and prevent any potential bacterial growth.
  • Short Storage Duration: It’s best to consume frappe punch within 1-2 days of making it. The ingredients can separate over time, and the freshness of the punch can start to decline.
  • Stir Before Serving: If the punch has been sitting in the refrigerator, give it a good stir before serving to ensure all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Avoid Freezing: While you might be tempted to freeze frappe punch to extend its shelf life, this can affect the texture and flavor of the drink. It’s best enjoyed fresh.

  1. Hi Jocelyn, I can’t wait to make this punch! Do you use 6 ounce cans or 12 ounce cans of limeade and pink lemonade?

    1. Sure thing! 6 ounce cans are totally fine for this recipe.

    1. Hi Peggy, it just mixes into the liquid and dissolves faster and completely without any graininess.

    1. Trish: Yes, sure is great for a nice gathering. I also love your recipes too…

  2. I always love a punch with ice cream or sherbet in it – perfect in the hot, humid summertime!

  3. Okay, I’m married and don’t have any bridal showers I am attending coming up, but I’m thinking I want to renew my vowes just so I can ask someone to bring this! But that’s probably a little high maintenance? I’ll totally settle for making this myself and having a party of one! Besides, then I don’t have to share! This is so gorgeous, girl! I want to swim in this fancy, pretty in pink punch! Pinned!!

  4. We used to do a spin on this when i was a kid…but minus the booze! I love this grown up version of my favorite childhood treat…I wish it was 5 o-clock! Pinned!

  5. How fun! This is so colorful and the flavors sound fantastic. Love those pretty scoops of sherbet floating around in there!
