One of the most important reasons to have a baby shower is punch!

The weekend before my first baby shower, I had the most delightful time with a couple of my girlfriends who were throwing the shower. While we planned and picked recipes for dishes, we also made about four different batches of punch. As we sat and drank the punch I got to pick my favorite for the shower.

We had eloborate punches, and we had one very simple punch. To this day that simple punch is my favorite!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 8 liters of Sprite
  • 1 gallon of rainbow sherbert


  • Buy the ice cream in half gallon containers. Take the first half gallon out and place it in the punch bowl.

  • Add a two liter container of Sprite® to the bowl and as it melts use an ice cream scoop to break off bits of the ice cream.

  • Freshen up as necessary with additional ice cream and Sprite®.

For a flavorful flare consider adding fruit. Other additions could be ice cubes with party favors tucked inside, or colored ice cubes

This was My Grandma's Punch!, Member MrsHashBrown

This punch is totally delicious! I LOVE it and can't believe I forgot about it. The ice cream gets all melty and foamy and it's so tasty. Looks pretty in little crystal punch glasses too, kind of a pinkish-orange color. My Grandma used to make it for family weddings and sometimes would add a little champagne. Our family weddings used to be much smaller, more economical affairs. My Mom made it for my sister's baby shower when she was pregnant 18 years ago and for my bridal shower 8 years ago. I'm going to request it for my baby shower in four weeks.
