Halloween Sherbet Punch Ingredients

  • Green berry blast Hawaiian Punch
  • Sprite or your favorite lemon lime soda
  • Pineapple juice: Use the juice from a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks or slices.
  • Lime, green sherbet
  • Gummy worms for garnishing
  • Gummy eyeballs for garnishing: I use these.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Switch The Sherbet: Feel free to make your sherbet drink with your favorite flavored scoops. My orange sherbet punch and rainbow sherbet punch recipes are also fun and festive.
  • Swap The Soda: Instead of Sprite, you can use 7Up, Sierra Mist, Ginger Ale, or a generic brand lemon-lime soft drink.
  • Cut The Calories: To lighten up your lemon lime punch, you can use diet soda, seltzer, or sparkling water.
  • Add Some Alcohol: Adding alcohol to your punch bowl is a perfect way to get any adult Halloween party started. Try spiking your bubbly beverage with a bit of rum, vodka, Prosecco, or Champagne.

How to Make Halloween Sherbet Punch

  1. Pour Into The Punch Bowl: Pour the Hawaiian Punch, Sprite, and Pineapple juice into the punch bowl.
  2. Scoop The Sherbet: Add scoops of sherbet on top of the liquid.
    Pro Tip: Some of it will begin to break down; however, it should float on the surface well. 
  3. Serve: Garnish with candy and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Tips For Making Halloween Sherbet Punch

  • To drain the pineapple juice, open the can slightly enough for the juice to drain without the pineapple coming out.
  • Do not serve this punch with ice. The sherbet will cool the punch well, and the ice will not mix well with the sherbet. 
  • The worms and eyeballs should lay on top of the sherbet. However as the sherbets dissolve into the punch, they will sink further down. 
  • I like to lay the worms and eyeballs on larger chunks of sherbet so they stay afloat longer.
  • You can add food coloring for a more intense color.

How to Store Halloween Sherbet Punch

  • To Store: You can store any leftover punch in the fridge. The carbonation will diminish, but it will still taste delicious! You can always add a bit more soda to bring back the fizz.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is sherbet?

Sherbet is not quite ice cream and not quite sorbet. It is a frozen treat made with fruit juice, sugar, and water, but it also includes dairy—usually milk or buttermilk. This gives it a slightly creamier texture than sorbet and its signature pastel color.

Does sherbet contain dairy?

Yes, sherbet does contain a small amount of milk product. But it’s not nearly as much as you find in ice cream. That’s why the texture and flavor of sherbet is more like a fruit sorbet (which contains NO milk)

Can I serve my punch in a pitcher?

Punch bowls are easier for scooping out sherbet, but if you prefer a pitcher, you certainly can use one. You can get creative and serve your punch in science beakers or a black cauldron with some dry ice.

Jenn’s Notes

Storage:

Tips:
  • To drain the pineapple juice, open the can slightly enough for the juice to drain without the pineapple coming out.
  • Do not serve this punch with ice. The sherbet will cool the punch really well and the ice will not mix well with the sherbet.
