Only THREE ingredients are needed for this delicious Sherbet Punch! This drink recipe is my go-to for serving at events or parties. It’s always the first thing to go!
This sherbet punch uses a classic sherbet flavor paired with fruit juice and soda. It’s gorgeous to look at, delicious to drink, and fast to prepare. Plus, this recipe is so easy to adapt. You can easily change up the sherbet and/or fruit juice for a different flavored (and different colored) punch depending on the event you’re serving it for!
There’s nothing like a festive and fun colored drink to tie together an event! Whether it’s a holiday celebration, birthday party, bridal/baby shower, you name it! This sherbet punch will quickly become your go-to recipe. The thing I love about this drink too is how easy it is to prepare. Really, it only has 3 ingredients and whips together in a snap.
How to make Sherbet Punch
This punch couldn’t be easier to make. Simply mix together some sherbet, lemon lime soda, and pineapple juice in a large punch bowl. Stir until the sherbet starts to combine with the liquid. I like to garnish this drink with some fresh fruit, but that’s completely optional.
Specific quantities of ingredients can be found in the recipe card at the end of this post.
While it’s easy to make, after making this many times I’ve learned a few things that make it even easier:
- Freeze some sherbet scoops: cover a muffin tin with plastic wrap. Scoop out even-sized scoops of raspberry sherbet and place one scoop in each cavity of the muffin tin. Cover again with plastic wrap and freeze until ready to serve. When you’re ready to serve, add these frozen sherbet balls into the punch which gives it a really cool look!
- Make to taste: The quantities I give in the recipe card at the end of this post are what I’ve personally found to be the best, but these are easily adjusted to your taste preferences. Occasionally I’ll switch out the lemon lime soda for Ginger Ale which is also delicious!
- Garnish: a handful of fresh fruit or fresh herbs adds a gorgeous pop of color to a sherbet punch. I love adding a few fresh (or even frozen!) raspberries to this punch.

Only THREE ingredients are needed for this delicious, party-perfect Sherbet Punch! This drink recipe is my go-to for serving at events or parties. It's always the first thing to go!
- 1/2 gallon Raspberry Sherbet
- 1 bottle (2 liters) Lemon-lime soda (such as Sprite; diet soda works great too!) (OR use ginger ale!)
- 4 cups pineapple juice
- Optional: fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish
OPTIONAL TIP: cover a muffin tin with plastic wrap. Scoop out even-sized scoops of raspberry sherbet and place one scoop in each cavity of the muffin tin. Cover again with plastic wrap and freeze until ready to serve. (This helps the sherbet stay frozen for longer and makes the top of your punch bowl gorgeous!)
Add half of the sherbet, lemon lime soda, and pineapple juice in a large punch bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir until the sherbet starts to combine with the liquid.
FINISH IT OFF: add the rest of the sherbet (frozen in balls) on top and garnish (if desired) with fresh berries.
