Party Punch with Sherbet
If you get to visit the store when the MONOPOLY Collect & Win game is going on they will give you a bunch at checkout. I think it is one for every ten dollars or so. Even if you don’t think you’re going to use the whole game board and match it up you should still collect them.
Reason being is there are coupons and free food stamps in there. I have found one that is a package of free crackers or gallon of milk. All of them are for store brand items but doesn’t really matter to me, I mean free?

Party punch recipe
It is super simple to throw this together I tell you. You can tweak it a bit too if you can’t find 7 up brand you could use Sprite or a store brand lemon lime soda. Occasionally I will find a 2 liter of Fanta pineapple soda and OMG is that good. It should just be something fruity is all really.
- Get out a punch bowl.
- Pour in a container of Simply Orange juice.
- some like a mixture of pineapple orange juice
- Simply pineapple juice can be used instead too
- Pour in a container of Simply Orange juice.
Want to make a super sweet mixture? Use fruit punch or pink lemonade instead of soda. For adults you could really change it up, I don’t think I have to explain how you could turn this into a party punch cocktail but I will. Now you won’t use 2 liters of alcohol, I mean no….. Use a light soda with a cup of hard liquor to give it just a boost.
- Follow that by 1 liter of 7-up.
- Scoop out some pink sorbet or any color you choose; we used rainbow this time.
- Sprinkles are optional but super fun.
- Allow the sorbet to melt just a bit before serving.
It’s super fun especially if you’re throwing a rainbow birthday party!
Best Party Punch
Now, let’s say you need the best birthday party punch. Well, this is perfect for that…or just make an excuse to celebrate and have a half birthday party!
Here’s where our Nilla wafers came into play.
- Use them as polka dots on your 1/2 birthday cake.
- Serve them on the side of your rainbow party punch for snackin’.
You could serve this as part of a Half birthday party celebration too!! Making it for a smaller crowd? Just cut everything in half, easy peasy.
It’s super fun, and they probably would never expect it. No presents are necessary (though nice cards never hurt, and handmade is always best).
Here’s what you do:
- Mix ingredients together to make a cake (you can find a variety of flavors in the baking aisle of Albertsons when you’re there).
- Fill a round cake pan 3/4 way full (you’ll have some left over, so just use that to make a few cupcakes).
- Bake as directed.
- Allow cake to cool.
- Cut it in half.
- Put half the cake on a cake platter.
- Frost the top of that if you’d like some frosting in between the layers.
- Flip the other half upside down so it fits together perfectly as you see here (like a half moon with the flat sides placed together).
- Frost the top.
Decorate it with Nilla wafer polka dots and sprinkles. Put a candle in the middle. Then enjoy with friends and family!
As for the party punch recipe you’ll have the best success if you scoop the sorbet out about 15 minutes before you’re going to serve it so it melts just a bit and allows a bit of frothy top to build up.
The sweetness will pair well with your Simply Orange juice and 7-up which will make it a bit bubbly too!
Sherbet punch recipe
- 1-2 liters of 7-up – depends on how bubbly you want it (we used 1/2 of our 2 liter bottle)
- 52 oz. Simply Orange juice – the entire container
- 6 scoops of sorbet
Vary the amount of ice cream you use of course but consume it quickly because of course it’s going to melt.

Then scoop in 5-6 scoops of sorbet. Allow ice cream to melt just a bit before serving for optimal taste.
Best if served about 15 minutes after making it so there is a little bit melted into the mixture to sweeten it up. Enjoy party punch for kids.
Have cute plastic wine glasses for kids, they love those. For a baby shower it is great to fill mason jars with twine around the top with name tags hanging off of them as place holders.
