Holiday entertaining can be stressful for already way-too-busy families, but when you have an arsenal of quick and easy, yet festive, recipes, holiday entertaining can be a breeze. Our family has a favorite quick and easy festive drink recipe that is kid-friendly yet adult approved: Red Raspberry Punch (a yummy raspberry 7UP® punch recipe). The best part about this festive drink is that it’s made with only three ingredients – and all three ingredients are ones you can stock up one to have on hand for those last minute holiday get-togethers!
I was in our local Walmart finishing my Christmas shopping earlier this week, and immediately upon entering the store I saw a display for 7UP® – they were on sale for $1 each – and I decided to stock up for the holiday season. They didn’t have the original 7UP® at the front of the store, so I made a note to pick some up while grabbing groceries at the back of the store.
I also made a quick stop in the frozen section to pick up a bag of frozen raspberries and some raspberry sherbet, knowing that having such in my freezer would make it easy to throw together our favorite festive drink for any last minute get-togethers this holiday season.
Ingredients for 7UP Red Raspberry Punch
- 2L of 7UP®
- 1 cup of frozen red raspberries
- 1/2 quart of raspberry sherbet
How to Make 7UP Red Raspberry Punch
I borrowed a punch bowl from my mom to show you how pretty this drink can look when you make it and serve it, but this can just as easily be made in a large pitcher. We put our “extra” (if there is any) in a pitcher when we’re done serving it and keep it in the fridge.
Pour about 1/2 of the 7UP® into the punch bowl (or pitcher).
Add the frozen red raspberries.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the sherbet into the punch bowl (if the sherbet is too hard, you can soften in the microwave for about 30 seconds).
Pour the remainder of the 7UP® into the punch bowl.
Give the red raspberry punch a gentle stir and serve with a ladle (or pour if using a pitcher).
If you want to get super fancy, serve the red raspberry punch in fancy glasses.
We’ll be serving Red Raspberry Punch at all our holiday get-togethers this month!
