At a baby shower, the games and activities are sure to leave you guests hungry and thirsty. Punch can be the perfect accompaniment to your delectable finger food and will also refresh your guests.

Pink Peppermint Punch
- 1 quart peppermint ice cream
- 2 liters ginger ale (chilled)
- 1 cup cold milk
Empty the ice cream into a bowl and allow it to soften slowly. Add the milk and ginger ale to it. Either stir or blend it until it turns frothy. Transfer the punch to a punch bowl and only bring it out of the refrigerator at the time of serving.
- 1½ cups sugar
- 2 cups mangoes (pureed; fresh or frozen)
- ½ cup fresh lime juice
- 5 cups cold water
Heat some water in a saucepan, and when it begins to boil, pour in the sugar. Allow the sugar to dissolve over low heat. Now pour in the cold water, add the pureed mangoes, and stir in the lime juice. Pour it into a punch bowl and add shaved or cubed ice. This punch serves four.
- 11 cups water
- 2 liters lemon-lime soda
- 3 cups sugar
- Chilled lime slices
- ¾ cup limeade concentrate
Mix together the sugar, water, and limeade concentrate until the sugar melts. Pour it into a 4-qt. freezer container, cover it with a lid, and freeze. Take the punch out of the freezer a few hours before the baby shower, and let it melt till you are able to chop it into slush.
The soda needs to be added just before serving. Float lime slices on the punch or place them on the rims of the glasses. This punch serves thirty.
- 1 quart vanilla ice cream
- 2 quarts pineapple juice
- 1 quart rainbow sherbet
- 1 (2 liter) bottle of 7-Up or Sprite
Blend together the ice cream and sherbet, and pour the mixture into a punch bowl. Add in the soda and pineapple juice. The punch will turn pink when you add the rainbow sherbet to it. If you want a green punch, use lime sherbet, or orange sherbet for orange punch. Serve with ice.
Blue Bath Recipe
- 1 (0.13 ounce) package blue berry-flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix
- 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
- 1 (64 fluid ounce) bottle white cranberry juice
- 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup white sugar, or to taste
- 3-5 new, clean mini rubber duckies
Mix together the lemon-lime soda, Kool-Aid, and white cranberry juice in a large punch bowl. If need be, add sugar to it. Spoon a few scoops of the ice cream in the punch; as it floats and slowly melts into the punch, it will turn it into a pretty blue color. Float the rubber duckies on the punch.
One way of preparing the baby shower punch is mixing the chilled carbonated beverages with the punch just before the party begins. This is to avoid the punch from getting diluted by ice, which happens often. You can serve the punch in cocktail glasses with frosted rims for good presentation.
