i am baby {ducky shower punch}


One of the most rewarding things about blogging, is the friendships that are formed.  Some I’ve been able to meet in person, but many I have not, but it doesn’t stop us from being a huge support system for one another.  We “get together” daily to chat, laugh, cry, vent, and support each other.  (Skype is such an awesome tool!)

So it only makes sense that when one of us has something really huge to celebrate, we ALL want to celebrate!!  No matter how many miles between us!

Today, we are throwing a SURPRISE virtual baby shower for our sweet friend Amanda of i am baker.

Ducky Bath Baby Shower Punch Recipe

Amanda is expecting her fourth baby next week!  A sweet baby boy.  And we couldn’t let it pass with out celebrating in a special way!   17 other amazingly talented bloggers and myself have managed to keep a big fat secret from Amanda and pulled off this SURPRISE (we hope)

What’s the first thing you think of when you think of a shower?  Great food and there’s always punch! When else do you get to sip a sugary filled colorful concoction out of tiny little cups?

I’ve been dying for an excuse to make this adorable Ducky Bath Punch!  The blue Kool-Aid makes it look like bath water and  the sherbet mixed with the ginger ale gives it  “bath bubbles”.

UPDATE: I get emails all the time asking how to make this punch pink….but the whole point of the blue is for the water (not for boy/girl) pink water would no longer look like ducks in a bath, it would look like ducks in pink punch. I usually suggest if you really need it to look more girly, use pink ducks.…..but honestly if your shower theme is pink, and this is sitting in the middle, it will fit in just fine…blue water and all! HA

Blue Kool Aid – Look for Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade or Berry Blue flavors

Also, not all rubber ducks will float – I bought bath tub rubber duckies from the baby department.  Make sure your rubber ducks float!

Can’t find Blue Kool Aid?

**Many people are having a problem finding blue Kool-Aid.  A reader used berry blue typhoon Hawaiian Punch, ginger ale white grape juice and sherbert… and NO SUGAR! (the Hawaiian Punch is sweetened so no more sugar is needed)

Ducky Bath Baby Shower Punch Recipe

Ducky Bath Baby Shower Punch

Yield: 24 small servings

Ducky Bath Baby Shower Punch

Summary: Adorable Ducky Bath Punch – The blue Kool-Aid makes it look like bath water and the sherbet mixed with the ginger ale gives it “bath bubbles”.


  • 1 packet blue, unsweetened Kool-Aid (Look for Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade or Berry Blue flavors)
  • 1 (2 liter) bottle Ginger Ale
  • 1 (64 oz) bottle White Grape Juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 scoops pineapple sherbet
  • 2-3 Rubber Duckies (make sure they float - bathtub toys)
  • maraschino cherries (optional for garnish)
  • orange slices (optional for garnish)


  1. Chill ginger ale and grape juice over night
  2. Remove sherbet from freezer about 1/2 hour before serving punch to soften
  3. In a large bowl, combine Kool-Aid packet, sugar and chilled juice. Stir to blend.
  4. Slowly add chilled ginger ale.
  5. Float 8 scoops of softened sherbet on top
  6. Add Rubber Duckies (don’t forget to wash before using)
  7. garnish cups with cherries and orange slices


If you can't find Blue KoolAid then you can replace the kool aid and sugar with Berry Blue Typhoon Hawaiian Punch. DO NOT ADD 1 CUP of sugar if you do this! The Hawaiian Punch already has sugar in it.

    hosted a baby shower , very cute idea !!! I served it in a pink baby bath with duckies around it and a blow up duck next to it , makes a great present when done

    • April replied on May 19th, 2012 at 3:41 pm

      What punch packet did you use to make it pink?

      • TidyMom replied on May 22nd, 2012 at 4:34 pm

        the blue if for the effect of looking like water – not for boy or girl – if you make the punch pink, it will no longer seem like bath water.

        • Michele replied on September 18th, 2012 at 8:34 pm

          Thank you for this great idea. I will be hosting a baby shower next month, with a ” FINDING NEMO” theme. We are going to use this punch and put floating NEMO bath toys in it. Maybe even the ones that don’t float. I’m hoping it will be a huge hit.

      • Amy replied on July 18th, 2012 at 8:27 pm

        You can also find a large variety of different kinds of rubber ducks on the Oriental Trading Company website…literally, any kind of rubber duck you want is there!

        • TidyMom replied on July 19th, 2012 at 8:26 am

          thanks so much!…just be sure they are floating/bath tub ducks

            I’ve always liked the Hawaiian Punch & lemon lime soda recipe with sherbet. It was an easy leap when I saw the blue Hawaiian Punch on the grocery shelf. Always stays blue, no color problems and everyone likes it.

    • Rebecca replied on January 13th, 2013 at 2:17 pm

      Can this punch be made using alcohol? Will that affect the suds?

      • TidyMom replied on January 14th, 2013 at 6:59 am

        I don’t know, I’ve never tried it. Please leave an update if you do.

      • Janet replied on April 10th, 2013 at 2:24 pm

        I make a punch similar to this for New Years Eve. 2, 2 liters bottles of ginger ale, 7up or sprite, 1 bottle 750 ml champagne and a small tub of sherbert. I use rainbow. Light, refreshing and very frothy. Nice way to welcome the new year! :)

    What a cute idea! Where did you find your rubber ducks? They look better than some and float well.

    • TidyMom replied on May 22nd, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      There is an Amazon link to the ducks in the post – but I picked mine up at Target

    So, I was so excited to make this recipe for my sister’s baby shower this past weekend! I bought the only blue packet of kool aid at the store (the third I’d been to looking for blue kool aid) and when I mixed it, it was red!! I couldn’t believe it and it was too late to do anything about it, so my duckies floated in a blood bath, lol! Luckily my sister thought it was funny, but I still can’t find actual blue kool aid anywhere!

    • TidyMom replied on May 28th, 2012 at 8:47 am

      Oh no! lol……yeah, that’s confusing when they make the packets a different color than the kool-aid

  4. Jen posted on June 2, 2012 at 9:06 pm (#)

    I was super excited to try this for my friends baby shower. However when I made it with the blue kool aid – it turned green! I guess the white grape juice and gingerale (yellowish) mixed with the blue turned it an aweful shade of green…so we added another packet of blue. It was still green, but it kind of matched our color theme. I would have really liked it to be blue blue though. I wish I had read the comments first about the hawiian punch and sprite. that sounds like a great idea. And my foam didn’t last. Any tips on making it foamier??

    • TidyMom replied on June 4th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

      so sorry, I didn’t have a problem with mine turning green.

      • Deb replied on June 16th, 2012 at 11:03 am

        We were thinking of making the punch green to make it look like the duckies were swimming in a pond. I got lemon-lime. That was the only green type I could find. I found strawberry-kiwi but that would probably look red or pink. If I do blue, I could only find mixed berry. I might have to experiment before actually making the punch to see what color I might end up with. Do you just use one packet dry of the kool aid?

    • Diana replied on June 27th, 2012 at 10:00 am

      Mine turned PUKE green as well………….

      • Debi replied on October 25th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

        Love this idea just found out I’m going to be a Grandma again (4th one) but first for my daughter. I’m so going to use this. I think if you are wanting to turn the punch to the green side you could add a drop or two of green food coloring. Don’t go heavy with it becuse depending on what brand you use some just takes a little bit and of course you could always add more.

  5. Michelle posted on June 9, 2012 at 10:13 pm (#)

    If you substitute Hawaiian punch for the kool-aid packet, how much hawaiian punch should you use? The recipe doesn’t say that. Thanks!

    • TidyMom replied on June 12th, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      My suggestion to someone else was, if you were to use Hawaiian punch instead of kool-aid, then I would eliminate the grape juice, and replace that 64 ounces with 64 ounces of Hawaiian punch. I don’t forget, you will NOT need the sugar then either.

      Hope this helps

  6. MamaToBe223 posted on June 15, 2012 at 11:17 am (#)

    Would it be okay to use a different kind of sherbert?? Pineapple is not my favorite.

    • TidyMom replied on June 15th, 2012 at 11:42 am

      Well, the pineapple is mild and the flavor mixes will with the other fruity flavor AND it’s the only white colored sherbet. You could try vanilla ice cream, I would imagine it would yield similar results, but I’ve never tried it.

    • Sara replied on September 16th, 2012 at 2:06 pm

      Did you try another flavor? We are using this next month, and I also do not like pineapple..

  7. alyson posted on June 20, 2012 at 8:58 pm (#)

    This is so cute. I’m wondering why nobody thought to add some blue food coloring instead of complaining it didn’t work for them? Thanks again for such a cute idea. I am hosting a baby shower for my sister in a few weeks and we are surely going to do this :)

    • TidyMom replied on July 5th, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      I think that would be a good solution too! thanks

      • Andreya replied on September 8th, 2012 at 4:10 pm

        I am planning on making this for my sons 2nd birthday but I could not find single packets of ice blue rasberry koolaid I could only find a big container how much should I use?

  8. Katie posted on June 27, 2012 at 11:26 am (#)

    I like the idea…but reading the comments the original poster seems short and kinda rude when asked questions about the recipe.

    • Therese replied on July 5th, 2012 at 10:24 am

      What do you expect? The OP wasn’t there when readers were making it… how would she know what they did wrong? lol!

    Hello! Could you use 7up or Sprite instead of Ginger-Ale? I am not a huge fan pf Ginger Ale but I did not know if iit would change it in anyway besides possible the flavor?

    • TidyMom replied on July 5th, 2012 at 4:28 pm

      I would think that would be just fine Jackie – let me know how it turns out if you try it

    I made this at my cousins baby shower, with the hundred other things I had to do, I forgot to chill ginger ale and juice over night or set out sherbert before hand, and we put in like half of the sherbert, it turned out GREAT!!! thank you so much, I am planning on using the same recipe for my friends luau bachelorette party, instead of ducks, I am looking for fish. Thank you for the wonderful idea!!!

  11. Judy Lewis posted on July 16, 2012 at 8:05 am (#)

    I used the rubber duck punch recipe for a baby shower yesterday! Oh my, it was a huge hit! I’ll be honest, I was a bit Leary since a couple of reviewers said theirs had turned a nasty green! Mine was a gorgeous blue just as your photo. It was delicious as well! Thanks for the wonderful idea!

  12. Amy posted on July 25, 2012 at 11:03 pm (#)

    We made this punch for a shower this past weekend and it was a great success! Very cute for the baby who has been referred to as “duckling” in utero. Since we traveled by plane and threw our friend a shower at her home, we were not able to bring a punch bowl. A last minute improvisation ended up looking really cute! The largest bowl we could find was an oval white ceramic crockpot pot (pulled out of the crockpot, of course). It ended up looking just like a bathtub! Perfect! Also, we could not find pineapple sherbet and substituted vanilla ice cream. It was very yummy and appropriately “frothy”.

    • Annie replied on November 19th, 2012 at 7:23 am

      Oh, that is so helpful to know about the vanilla ice cream! I could not find pineapple sherbet at any of the stores around here, and I didn’t know if vanilla would work on not, and my sister-in-law’s baby shower is tomorrow! Thanks!

  13. Julie posted on August 4, 2012 at 3:28 pm (#)

    I made this for my sister- in- laws baby shower and it turned out great! That you for the idea!
    I used about 9 cups of the Berry Blue Typhoon Hawaiian Punch and 3 cups of white grape juice ( a little less then half as much juice). Then I added 1 liter ginger ale and piña colada sherbet. I stirred it a little and got some foam going and then added another half liter of ginger ale and stirred a little more. I was worried that it wouldn’t look nice and “bubbley” like the picture but it worked great!!! There were LOTS of bubbles! It was so much fun to make and everybody loved it. The taste was wonderful too. I think the piña colada sherbet adds some sophistication to it. :) I will definitely add this to my collection!

  14. Lucy posted on August 17, 2012 at 7:52 am (#)

    I made this punch exactly as the recipe states and it was a big hit. It looked and tasted great. I did have a problem finding the blue Kool-Aid, but finally found it at Wal-Mart. Just as the other comments state, the color of the packet does not indicate the color of the Kool-Aid. I bought several packets to try first and found this out. I also had cute mini rubber duckies that I also tried out first and they did not float. Since I still wanted to use them, I froze a small container of water to use as an ice block then put the little duckies on top and added just a little more water and froze again to make the duckies freeze in a stationary position in the ice. Next time though I will get real floating duckies. Can’t wait to have the opportunity to make it again!!

  15. Gwendolyn posted on August 20, 2012 at 9:35 pm (#)

    Thanks so much for posting this! I LOVE the duck punch idea. I used it for my daughters 2nd birthday party. The color and taste were perfect. It was very funny because the ducks I had wouldn’t stay upright, so of course there were many comments about the ducks drinking too much punch! Grin.

    And I was thrilled with the idea of a bowl on a cake stand because I just can’t bring myself to buy a punch bowl! Thanks for the great Ideas.

    i made the punch for my daughter in laws gender party–it turned out sooooo cute-i used the blue hawaiin punch and it did just fine. i floated blue and yellow ducks and also made a pink punch and used pink and yellow ducks it turned out adorable looked like bubble bath!!!!

  17. Julie posted on August 30, 2012 at 11:59 am (#)

    My MIL makes a pink punch out of rasperry sherbert and gingerale. ~ She also has made it with raspberry sherbert and cold duck liquer (which is sort of like a low bubbly champaigne) if you want it alchololic, which probably isn’t good for a baby shower… but is wonderful for a bridal shower!

  18. keri haynes posted on September 3, 2012 at 11:16 pm (#)

    If I use the blue Hawaiian punch, how much do I use? And do I still add in the grape juice And ginger ale? I have a punch bowl, but will all this fit in a punch bowl or should it be mixed in something else?

    • TidyMom replied on September 4th, 2012 at 7:38 am

      This is what reader Julie (a few comments above) said worked great for her:

      “I used about 9 cups of the Berry Blue Typhoon Hawaiian Punch and 3 cups of white grape juice ( a little less then half as much juice). Then I added 1 liter ginger ale and piña colada sherbet.

    • TidyMom replied on November 1st, 2012 at 7:37 am

      No – per the directions: “In a large bowl, combine Kool-Aid packet, sugar and chilled juice. Stir to blend.”

      • Mary Helen replied on May 9th, 2013 at 11:34 am

        To see if I have this right do you mix the Kool-aid, with the sugar and Whte Grape Juice. Then right before serving do you still add the 1 Liter of Sprite or Ginger Ale and the Sherbert? If I do the Blue Hawaiian Punch, I omit the sugar. Do I also omit White Grape Juice and just add the Sprite or Ginger Ale with the Sherbert right before serving?

  30. mandi lewis posted on November 1, 2012 at 11:38 am (#)

    I made this for my friends baby shower yesterday and it was a big hit! It came out exactly as pictured :) The Kool-Aid was hard to find in Blue. After 4 stores I found a Berry Blue….yeah! I actually heated about 10 ounces of the White Grape Juice to mix the sugar and Kool Aid packet and then added it into the cold drink mix and then added the sherbet. I was afraid the sugar wouldn’t dissolve properly with cold liquid. I wouldn’t change a thing and I will defiantly make it again. Thanks for sharing.

    I tried this recipe a couple years ago for my daughter’s ducky baby shower. I used the pre-made Kool-Aid gallon jugs from the grocery store, instead of ginger ale and the white grape juice I used pineapple soda. This made a very nice blue-green pond color. The pineapple sherbet on top was nice and frothy. My daughter was expecting a girl, so we used pink ducks!

I used the Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade and Welch’s white grape juice and it turned green so I added blue food coloring (i was prepared after reading comments) and it worked fine and I had to make a 2nd round and I used an off brand of white grape juice and this actually turned blue. So I guess Welch’s brand will turn it green. Hope this is helpful. :-)

    I made the punch just like you said Koolaid and all this weekend, my only problem was after I added the Ginger Ale it turned more of a green color. I added another package of Koolaid and it looked better, but still no where as pretty as yours. Eventually I just added some food coloring and made it the color I wanted, and it turned out great! Thank you for the awesome idea, it was deciduous and a huge hit!

    How many people does this recipe serve? I am having a rather large shower this weekend and was wondering if I should double the recipe. This is ADORABLE!!! I cannot wait to see how it turns out :)

    I tried this adorable punch for my best friend’s baby shower. Not only was it adorable and it did get foamy but not as good as the photo…it was delicious. Yum!
