Baby Shower Party Punch Recipes

It’s such a shame that you hardly ever see a traditional punch bowl at parties any more—the cut glass and tiny matching glassware that forces pinkies into the air paired with ginormous quantities of punch is downright charming. Most people are now using the beverage dispensers that come with handy spigots to pour drinks, but not all drinks are suitable for this kind of container—I think the best party punch is served out of a bowl where you can ladle icy pieces of sherbet into the glass along with the liquid.

If there’s one place where the punch bowl still truly belongs, it is at a baby shower. Today I’m going to share a few party punch recipes that are sure to please your shower-goers and perhaps revive an old tradition that deserves to be carried on.

Baby Shower Sherbet Punch

When you are looking for sherbet in the grocery store, be sure to look for the kind that comes in a molded ring. It just looks prettier! Otherwise, scoop the sherbet out and place the balls into your punch bowl so they have a chance to mix with the liquids.

Pineapple-Lime Punch
Half gallon of lime sherbet
24 oz. pineapple juice
2 liters of lemon-lime soda

Place lime sherbet into a punch bowl. Pour pineapple juice and lemon-lime soda over sherbet. Stir briefly and serve.
