Common Sherbet Punch Questions

Party Punch Variations

What other sodas fit well with Sherbet punch?  In this punch recipe, Sprite is used. 7up or Mountain Dew also make solid lemon lime flavors that compliment this punch. 

Can Ginger Ale be used? It can – you can substitute Ginger Ale for the Sprite. 

Can you use other kinds of Sherbet? Absolutely! I would suggest Raspberry or Orange Sherbet to pair up with lime – provides pretty colors and awesome kid friendly flavors

Can Vanilla Ice Cream be used? You could most certainly make Lime Sherbet Floats with the addition of a creamy vanilla ice cream

What kind of Alcohol can go into Sherbet Punch? Looking for a more adult version for punch? Try adding flavored Rums (Brinly has Lime flavor and Bacardi has Lemon or Orange, Cruzan has a Pineapple) or flavored Vodka like Skinnygirl Tangerine or Absolut Grapefruit. 

 How many glasses of punch will this recipe make?

This really depends on the size of glasses you serve with your punch. Most people use 6 oz. plastic punch glasses (which accounts for all the way to the top) so serving size is typically 5 oz. in a cup. That means approximately 17 glasses of punch can be served. If you use larger glasses, serves 10-12, 8 oz. servings.

Punch Bowl or Pitcher?

Whatever you have on hand! If you have a super huge pitcher, this works well or simply make in a punch bowl and serve with a ladle.

The correct spelling and name is Sherbet.
