Ingredients

  • 2 liter Ginger Ale
  • 64 oz. (1 bottle) White Grape Juice
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar (White)
  • 1/3 gallon (7-8 scoops) Pineapple Sherbet, Other flavors will work
  • 1 packet Blue Koolaid
  • Maraschino Cherries, Optional - for garnish
  • Oranges, Pineapple, Apples, Optional - for garnish
  • Rubber Duckies, Must be floatable/suitable for a bath

Directions

  1. Chill white grape juice and ginger ale overnight.
  2. Remove the sherbet (from the freezer) approximately one half-hour prior to making the punch.
  3. Combine sugar, kool-aid, and chilled white grape juice in a large punch bowl. Stir.
  4. Slowly add in chilled ginger ale.
  5. Float 7-8 scoops (more/less depending on the size of the bowl) of sherbet on top.
  6. Strategically place the rubber duckies (big or small) in the punch. It seems to be easier to do so in between the scoops of sherbet.
  7. Make the garnish (see below).

Garnish

Wash all fruit being used for the garnish. Cut oranges (and pineapples or apples, or any other fruit desired) into wheels or wedges. Remove stems from the cherries. Place on a plate or in a cup, with some sort of utensil to easily pick it up (like a toothpick).

Or, instead of allowing guests to pick and choose what to garnish with, make garnish skewers. Using toothpicks (colored, decorated, or plain), pierce the fruit, and lay on a plate for easy access.

Add cups, a serving utensil (ladle), and napkins, and serve!

      Wow, this looks great and also sound like an easy recipe.

      Maybe I will try it out once, although I have never been on a baby shower so far (it's not a tradition in Hungary).

      Voted up + useful!
