Best Baby shower drinks
Here is a pretty pink punch for baby showers celebrating a girl!
- 3 c. strawberries
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 4 c. sparkling water, ginger ale, or lemon lime soda
- Ice – more or less depending on how slushy you want it
- Blend all ingredients on pulse until ice is crushed, double or triple the recipe if you are serving in large quantiles and not making one batch at a time.
- Use mint as a garnish and to give it extra flavor.
- Using fun glasses brings it up a notch, I love mason jars for a party and could even garnish the glass with a burlap style string with a chalkboard tag sharing the baby’s name if it is already revealed (or more fun to reveal it this way at the party)….or paint the front indented area of the mason jars and write the baby’s name there!
- Perfect baby shower drink idea that is inexpensive but will make an impression.
Another fave is this baby shower punch with orange juice or frozen pink lemonade concentrate and ice cream. Well sorbet that is.
Of course you don’t always have to go with a blue or pink theme even if you know the baby’s gender. Go with the theme of your baby shower and get creative! Having floating fruit or sherbet in your drinks adds a nice flare.
- Use cute paper straws and find really cute glasses or mason jars that match your motif.
- Serve it in a really fun punch bowl!
- Use fun cups and glasses to serve your baby shower drinks in like mason jars or moscow mule mugs like we did with this cranberry juice version.
Hanging little sayings from the glasses is such a simple thing to do for your party that doesn’t cost a lot but can be something that people remember.
- Want a pineapple juice baby shower drink recipe? Try our sparkling island cocktail that you can easily make into a mocktail with a splash of soda.
If you like the idea of one but want to use grape juice instead, go ahead! Get creative with what you serve and create your own signature drink of your own. The guest of honor will love that with her name incorporated into it.
Want to add something cute?? Use a lime to wet the rim of the glass, then dip in a plate with kool aid on it before you fill it with the drink. It will leave a fun color and taste on the outside!
