Orange Sherbet Punch
Hey Fantabulosity readers! I know how much you loved Jessica’s family-favorite, BEST Fruit Punch recipe, so it was time to have another punch favorite, orange sherbet punch!
Sherbet or Sherbert?
I’m going to admit… I spelled and said sherbet, like SHERBERT, for YEARS! Who’s with me? I really hope I’m not alone.
But it turns out, according to this site, Sherbet is the answer!

It’s Meg from Meg’s Everyday Indulgence and I’m so super excited to be sharing another delicious recipe with you today, Orange Sherbet Punch.
Orange Sherbet Punch with 7up
Adding a lemon-lime soda like 7up, sprite or ginger ale to a punch is crucial, in my opinion.
It helps break up the sugary-syrupy texture that ice cream and orange juice, at least in this recipe, creates.
ORANGE SHERBET PUNCH INGREDIENTS
Here’s what you need to make orange sherbet punch:
- Orange sherbet
- Orange juice
- Lemon-Lime Soda, like 7up or Sprite
TIP: If you’re making it in a punch bowl, add the orange juice and lemon-lime soda and carefully stir together. You want to keep as many bubbles in the punch as possible so gentle stirring is key.
Also, before you plan on making the punch, it’s important to make sure your lemon-lime soda is chilled so that everything is cold and ready for serving. Nobody wants a kind of warm party punch.
Add in the Orange Sherbet
Next, add the orange sherbet by the scoopful into the punch bowl. Let the punch sit for a few minutes to allow the sherbet to soften a bit before serving.
The extra punch of orangey goodness that the orange juice provides really puts this punch above and beyond the typical sherbet punch.
How to Serve Punch:
You have two options for serving this punch.
First, you can make a big batch in a punch bowl. This is a great option if you’re having a big gathering where it will disappear quickly.
If it’s just your family or maybe you need a late-night treat, you can make it by the glass as well.
The amounts for both options are included in the recipe card below.
I love having paper straws on hand for drinking this punch. You can use plain paper straws or find festive ones that coordinate with your party. I love a good theme.
You can dress up your punch by adding thin slices of oranges to the rims of your punch glasses. It’s a simple way to fancy up this super simple punch.
Can I Substitute Another Sherbet Ice Cream Flavor?
If you aren’t able to find orange sherbet, don’t you worry!
You can change up the recipe with a variety of sherbet options. Lime, raspberry, pineapple or rainbow sherbet would all pair deliciously with the orange juice and lemon-lime soda.
I haven’t tried these options personally but I know the citrus of the liquid ingredients would taste really lovely with all of the sherbet flavors listed.
Can I Make this an Alcoholic Punch
You sure can my friends. I think a white rum, pineapple rum or vodka would be a great addition to this orange sherbet punch.
Another option is to keep the alcohol to the side and your guests can choose if they want their punch spiked.
If there are kids around, be sure to keep it out of their reach and clearly label which option is safe for them to drink.
PERFECT ALL YEAR LONG
Make sure you keep your refrigerator and freezer stocked with these three ingredients because I guarantee you’re going to enjoy this easy punch recipe throughout the year!
