Aloha punch is always a hit at parties. It is family friendly and filled with fruit punch, pineapple juice, orange sherbet and more!
A good party needs a punch. I am pretty sure that is a law that is written down somewhere on a scroll or something.
There is just something about a punch bowl or a beverage container filled with a fun colorful liquid that makes a party feel more official. This family friendly punch recipe is the one that made us fall back in love with punch and we have been hooked ever since.
We originally made this punch for a baby shower back in 2015. Since then we have done several variations on this idea.
It is fun and easy to switch up the flavors and colors to match whatever party theme you are having. But this version is still our favorite.
It starts with a gallon of bright red Hawaiian punch. Then you add pineapple juice, and gingerale.
The crowning glory on top are scoop of orange sherbet. They make the punch feel so much more fun!
Plus the flavors come together so well for a delicious creamy punch. It really is amazing.
If you serve the punch out of a punch bowl, get a little bit of sherbet for each glass. If you have it in a beverage dispenser, the flavors will combine as the sherbet melts.
Both ways will be super delicious and fun, so just do whatever your preference is.
Original post from 2015
When we were planning the menu for my cousin Cori’s baby shower, we knew there had to be punch. It is funny because we hardly ever make punch, but for a baby shower it seems like a necessity.
We were having the hardest time deciding what flavors to do. We had already made Grandma’s peach punch last spring, so we thought we had to do something a little bit different.
Of course there were a BILLION options on Pinterest. I narrowed it down to five and created a poll in our shower planning Facebook group (yes, I made a group, whatever). I just couldn’t make the decision on my own!!
There were 4 of us in the group and I abstained from voting. This one got three votes and another one got one.
Yep, that means somebody voted twice! I tell ya… Anyway, after getting the group directive I was happy to give this a go.
It was delicious and easy to make. I just kept the liquid ingredients in the fridge until just before party time and then scooped in the sherbet. It made a pretty punch!
I threw the leftovers in a gallon tub and put them in the freezer. The next day I broke it up with a fork and served it slushy style. Both ways were a big hit.
The punch was full of flavor without being too sickeningly sweet. I would certainly make it again!
