Ducky Baby Shower Punch
This Adorable Ducky Baby Shower Punch made with blue Kool-Aid gives the look of bath water and bubbles made of sherbet mixed with the ginger ale for the perfect party refreshment.
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 a blogging friend.
The mom-to-be is expecting her fourth baby next week! A sweet baby boy. And we couldn’t let it pass without celebrating in a special way!
What’s the first thing you think of when you think of a baby shower? Great food and even better drinks! Baby showers are a fun celebration that warrants an equally festive baby shower punch.
Punch is a staple at any baby shower and I’m all about it. When else do you get to sip a sugary filled colorful concoction out of tiny little cups?
This incredible Ducky Bath Punch will transform your drink table from a typical party punch into a beautiful part of the party decor.
The best thing about this punch is it doesn’t have to stay in the baby shower scene. Be the talk of the neighborhood at your next kid’s birthday party and roll out this show-stopping drink. It’s the perfect opportunity to be the cool parent on the block without spending a fortune on elaborate catered food and drinks.
With these simple steps and ingredients, you won’t want to leave this out of your next party. I’m still dying for more excuses to make this adorable Ducky Bath Punch again!
Helpful Ducky Baby Shower Punch Tips
UPDATE: I’ve answered some of the questions that are asked about this ducky baby shower punch most often
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
My Ducks Don’t Float: NOT ALL RUBBER DUCKS WILL FLOAT. I bought bathtub rubber duckies from the baby department. Make sure your rubber ducks float!
Can’t find Blue Kool-Aid? Many people have a problem finding blue Kool-Aid. A reader used berry blue typhoon Hawaiian Punch, ginger ale, white grape juice and sherbet… and NO SUGAR! (the Hawaiian Punch is sweetened so no more sugar is needed)
Can’t find pineapple sherbet? Lemon sherbet should work fine and might be easier to find, or vanilla ice cream.
While you can’t go wrong with this bathtub punch, it’s a good idea to have a batch of flavored water to offer guests as well.
