Baby Shower Party Punch

Baby showers are the perfect party in which to serve punch. These baby shower party punch recipes have been passed through the neighborhood and morphed into new and creative punches. One thing that has not changed in these baby shower punch ideas is their delicious tastes.

Pink Punch
Pink punch is perfect for a baby shower-especially if the mom-to-be already knows the baby will be a girl.

Ingredients You Will Need:
1 container frozen pink lemonade
1 2-liter bottle Sprite
Seedless watermelon balls

This is a simple, yet elegant punch. Mix together the lemonade and Sprite. Toss in the watermelon balls for added decoration and flavor. For added fun, fill skewers halfway with cut fruit pieces. Stick the bottom end of the skewers into a leftover wedge of watermelon and place in a decorated basket or bowl beside the punch. For a little extra chill and creaminess, add ice cream to the recipe.

Peppermint Pink Punch

Ingredients You Will Need:
2 quarts peppermint ice cream
2 large bottles 7-Up or Sprite
1 bag peppermints (unwrapped and crushed)

Cut one quart of ice cream into ice cube-sized squares and keep in freezer until you're ready to serve the punch. Take second quart of ice cream, cut into quarters and place into the punch bowl. Add the soda and stir. Add crushed peppermint as a garnish.

When the ice cream is completely melted, bring out the second quart of ice cream and use as ice cubes to cool second and third helpings.

Blue Punch
This punch should be used when the stork is going to deliver a boy baby.

Ingredients You Will Need:
1 small box blue gelatin (primarily used for the color)
1 2-liter bottle ginger ale
1 package blue Kool-Aid
1 package blue freeze pops
Blueberries
Purple grapes

Freeze the grapes and blueberries ahead of time. Mix the Kool-Aid with the ginger ale. Add the gelatin. Depending on the size of your punch bowl, you may need to double or triple this recipe. Cut the freeze pops into pieces. Add the freeze pops and the frozen fruit to the mix. Serve chilled.

Stray Away From Typical Baby Shower Party Punches
Baby shower party punch flavors and colors don't have to be blue or pink. If your family has a great punch recipe that everyone loves, don't hesitate to use it. Keep in mind that presentation and taste go hand in hand.

Experiment with different flavors, colors and textures. Ice cream punch is always a favorite at baby showers because of its smooth and creamy texture. A fizzy fruit punch with pineapple juice, orange juice, ginger ale, maraschino cherries and pineapple slices with a hint of cinnamon would be fun as well.

Add Pizzazz to Your Baby Shower Punch

  • Float rubber ducks or a small plastic boat in the punch
  • Make lily pads out of sheets of fruit roll-ups and insert edible flowers to keep them afloat
  • Add mini marshmallows as a garnish
  • Float chucks of fruit or make fruit kabobs
  • Use red licorice for straws
