You know it’s a party when the punch bowl comes out. This lemon lime sherbet punch is simple to make and really refreshing. It is the perfect family-friendly drink for any occasion.

A good party needs a punch. I am pretty sure that is a law, and if it isn’t, it should be!

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 will make you fall back in love with punch.

Ingredients including bottle of 7up, lemonade, lime sherbet, and lemon sherbet.

We have made many different sherbet punch recipes over the years. We like to change up the color to match the event.

There is just something extra fun about scoops of sherbet floating on top of the punch. It looks great in a punch bowl but also works in a beverage dispenser.

In this punch, we kept it super simple with just lemonade, white soda, and sherbet. It makes the lemon and lime flavors really shine.

Plus, as the sherbet melts, you get 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.

Or save some sherbet and put a small scoop into each glass and dispense the punch on top of the sherbet. That way, everyone gets some.

Both ways will be super delicious and fun, so just do whatever your preference is.

What do you do with leftover punch?

Sherbet punch like this is always best right away. However, the leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and enjoyed for several days.

We have also frozen leftover punch with success. Just break it up with a fork and serve it slushy style later.
