As a chronic over thinker, I rarely assume that anything scrumptious is only two or three ingredients. I remember as a child being in awe at the tastiness of baby shower punch. What magical blend could possibly create such a flavorful beverage?

After making this sherbet punch, I realized how quick and easy the sweet drink was and immediately wanted to experiment with different flavors. If you love orange as much as I do, get ready for a citrus blast with this orange sherbet punch.

Orange Sherbet Punch Ingredients

(See the recipe card below for measurements)

  • Orange sherbet ice cream
  • Orange soda (chilled)
  • Fresh sliced oranges (optional)

Easy Orange Sherbet Punch Directions

Fill a large punch bowl with all of the sherbet.

You want to do this right before your event so it doesn’t melt too much.

Pour all the orange soda on top of the sherbet. Again, this works the best if your pop is chilled so everything stays colder longer.

Easy party punch recipe notes, tips, and FAQ’s

What if the orange sherbet punch is too sweet?

If the punch is too sweet or overpowered by the double orange flavor, you can try using 7-Up instead of orange soda.

Can I make punch without a punch bowl?

If you don’t have a large punch bowl, make the punch in smaller batches. Because of the chunks of sherbet, it’s not as easy to pour. Use a ladle to scoop out the punch of whatever container you choose to use.

Can I use different flavors of sherbet and/or pop in my punch?

Yes, you can play around with the flavor combos of pop and sherbet. As you can see, this 2-ingredient punch is hard to mess up. You can’t really go wrong with a yummy flavor of soda plus a yummy flavor of sherbet or even ice cream.

Can I make party punch ahead of time?

No, you want to make the punch right before you plan to serve. You want the sherbet and the pop to be as cold as possible so it stays icy for your guests. Slice the oranges and have everything ready to go to simply dump in the sherbet and pop a few minutes before serving.
