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!
