What an adorable, colorful, and fun punch to make for any baby shower! This punch was a big hit today for a co-worker’s Dr. Seuss themed baby shower! So easy and quick to make and so much fun! There are so many versions of this punch on the internet, this is the one I tried and I have to say, it’s definitely a KEEPER! Give it a try and watch it disappear!
1 packet unsweetened BLUE colored Kool-aid (I used Berry Blue)
1 cup granulated Sugar
1 cup Water
1 (2 liter bottle) 7-Up, Sprite, or Ginger ale, chilled (I used 7-Up)
1 (64 oz. bottle) White Cranberry juice, chilled (I used White Cranberry Peach juice)
8 – 10 large scoops Vanilla ice cream (I used Breyer’s brand)
NEW Rubber duckies, washed well
Refrigerate the 7-Up and White cranberry juice and allow them to chill overnight or for a few hours. Allow the vanilla ice cream to sit on the counter to soften slightly for easy scooping, roughly about 15 – 20 minutes before starting to make this punch.
Once you are ready to prepare the punch; in a large punch bowl, combine the packet of blue kool-aid and sugar. Add the water; stir and allow the kool-aid and sugar to dissolve.
Carefully pour in the white cranberry juice and 7-Up. Stir to combine well. Add in the large scoops of vanilla ice cream and stir slightly, not too much.
Strategically place the rubber duckies, if using more than one, throughout the punch. SERVE immediately!
NOTE: Try using PINK colored kook-aid for a baby girl shower AND pineapple sherbet instead of the vanilla ice cream.
