Raspberry Sherbet Party Punch is a great drink to serve at your Sweet 16 Party or a pink baby girl shower. You are going to love this sweet and frothy drink that combines lemonade, sherbet, and ginger ale into one tasty non-alcoholic kid-friendly punch.
We made this punch for Emily’s 16th Birthday party and it was a favorite!
We used one tub of raspberry sherbet and one tub of rainbow sherbet because that was all that we could find at the store.
The pink color was perfect for our party decor and the punch tasted terrific.
You are going to love this easy party punch at your next get-together.

Key to Success #1 – Freeze Sherbet Balls in Advance
One of my best tips for sherbet punch is to scoop tiny sherbet balls and freeze them before your party.
Freezing the sherbet balls allows you to put them into the punch much quicker without having to stand there and scoop the sherbet when you’re trying to serve the punch.
In addition, you can reserve some frozen sherbet balls to add when the sherbet starts to get melted.
Use a tiny cookie scoop to portion out small balls of sherbet and place them in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Place the baking tray into the freezer for an hour or more until the sherbet is firm.
Once the sherbet has been re-frozen, you can remove them from the baking sheet and place them into a zip-top baggie for storage.
Key to Success #2 – Use Raspberry Lemonade for Extra Raspberry Flavor
We love to drink Simply Lemonade with Raspberry, and it works great in this punch recipe.
It’s a great way to add a little extra raspberry flavor without being overwhelming.
If you can’t find Simply Lemonade with Raspberry, you can use any pink lemonade.
Just make sure you make the lemonade in advance and refrigerate it until you are ready to make the punch.
Otherwise, the raspberry sherbet will melt much faster than you would prefer.
Country Time Raspberry Lemonade is a great alternative to Simply Lemonade with Raspberry.
Ensure that both your lemonade and your ginger are very cold when it’s time to make the punch.
Key to Success #3 – Use a Big Punch Bowl!
I actually use a large footed glass trifle bowl as a punch bowl.
I always look for kitchen items that perform double-duty and this one is no exception.
My trifle bowl holds over 5 quarts of food or liquid so there is room for plenty of punch even when it foams up.
Start by adding in the Simply Lemonade with Raspberry.
Next, spoon in one tub of raspberry sherbet then pour in the ginger ale and stir the punch well.
The ginger ale will make the sherbet start to foam up so add the ginger ale slowly.
Finally, drop a few frozen balls of sherbet into the punch. Do not stir.
The frozen sherbet balls are there to provide color and a little texture. They will melt slowly and you can add more sherbet as needed.
