I know everyone says they love birthday parties for the cake and ice cream but not in this house. We love the punch bowl (and not because it’s spiked, it’s not).
Kids (and adults) always go crazy for my popular Pink Party Punch recipe and this one is very similar except it’s a blue raspberry lemonade flavor with pineapple sherbet and of course, it’s blue for a Little Mermaid themed birthday party. Thus the name, “Under the Sea” party punch. Also check out Refreshing Pink Sherbet Lemonade!
What makes this punch so absolutely delicious is that it starts with frozen sherbet. You can use any color or flavor you like but for this particular party theme, I went with a white pineapple sherbet. And you’ll see why in a photo below.
One recipe of this party punch fits perfectly in a one gallon jug. In fact, it’s even more perfect in the Aladdin 1 gallon glass mason jar dispenser! (I was provided with this dispenser through the Mom Trends network)
So about that pineapple sherbet. I picked it because once you give your drink a little stir, the Sprite reacts with the sherbet and creates a foamy layer that kinda looks like sea foam. How fitting is that for an Ariel themed party?
“Under the Sea” Blue Raspberry Lemonade Sherbet Party Punch Recipe
- 1 – 12 ounce can frozen Lemonade concentrate
- 4 cans warm water, use the lemonade can
- 1 – 2 liter of Sprite
- 1 – 2 packets of Raspberry Lemonade powdered Kool-Aid mix
- 1 tub pineapple sherbet
- In a large punch bowl, mix frozen lemonade with warm water (or cold if already thawed).
- Add Kool-Aid powder and stir.
- Slowly add Sprite and gently stir to combine.
- Add a scoop of sherbet to a cup and pour punch over the top.
One thing to keep in mind, if you choose not to use the sherbet, you’ll definitely want to add more water and a big of sweetener or it’s going to be very tart. If you do use the sherbet, it will add just enough sweetness for the perfect flavor!
