I thought this recipe was just OK nothing special. It reminded me a great deal of Hawaian Punch Soda and Sherbet. My hubby really liked it. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and it was certainly sweet enough. Read More

This is definately a keeper! We tried this for a shower at work and it was a hit. I couldn't get enough of it. I took someone's advice and added just a little more ginger ale to make it go further. Read More

We used this recipe for our school's "Secret Santa" treats. The kids and the parents both were regularly coming back for seconds! I used a frozen strawberry concentrate (usually for mixed drinks) and a two cups of canned pineapple juice instead of the frozen pineapple concentrate. I left off the sliced oranges but the punch still made a pretty presentation and was delicious. It was easy to prepare ahead of time by mixing all of the ingredients except the sherbert and ginger ale in a large pitcher. I made a double batch with the intention of having some later for my own family but they ended up using it all at the festival! Read More

I made this punch for my Thanksgiving gathering. It was a HUGE hit!! I used 1/2 raspberry sherbet. I couldn't fit all the sherbet into the punch bowl but it didn't taste like it was lacking. It was great!! Read More

Thanks Angie for a superb recipe! Like the others I made a few changes; used sweetened strawberry koolaid 3/4 cup sugar 2 liter ginger ale 1/2 of the 1/2 gallon sherbert. I had to mix this in a big pot first it would not all fit in my punch bowl. Everyone loved it! I had 16 adults and it made plenty for everyone. The color of the punch was gorgeous too! I shared my recipe with many that night! Thanks! Read More

I made this for a client luncheon at work and it was a hit! The goal was a non-alcholic alternative to sangria because the event was fiesta-themed. Based on many people commenting that it was too sweet, I cut out all the sugar and used enough sweeted kool-aid for 3 quarts even though I added the full 4 quarts of water. I also floated sliced strawberries in the punch bowl and only added 5-6 large scoops of sherbet rather than the whole box. Everyone LOVED it! Most guests went back for seconds and one guy had 4 glasses of it. I plan to use it for home entertaining sometime soon and I will also add rum! Read More

I made this sweet baby for my girlfriends famly. Everyone loved it. I only used one cup of sugar however. I also used orange vanilla sherbert. It really came out great and I was the beverage hero of the evening. I think my girlfriend (Grace) would have married me that Thanksgiving day due to the quality of that punch I made. THANKS GRANDMA'S PUNCH YOU ROCK! Read More

A good punch but we ended up adding more ginger ale to compensate for the sweetness. Definitely not as much sugar next time! Read More
