Sunset Non-Alcoholic Punch Ingredients

You only need a few ingredients for this deliciously refreshing mocktail:

  • Raspberry Sherbet
  • Orange Juice
  • 7up or Sprite
  • 5oz Plastic Flutes – these are my FAVORITE ones
  • Sprinkles or Colored Sugar for Rims
  • Festive Stir Sticks
  • Fresh Raspberries and Mint for garnish
  • Optional: Grenadine syrup

Prepare Your Sunset Punch Flutes

Step 1: Dip the rim of each flute into orange juice and then roll in sprinkles or colored sugar for a beautiful presentation.

Step 2: You can make these individual beverages simply by scooping a 1/4 cup of raspberry sherbet into each flute. Depending on the size of your glass of course. These are 5oz flutes.

The raspberry sherbet isn't as vibrant as Grenadine syrup so if you want a true sunset you can add a little splash of it on top.

Flute Selection: I discovered a different flute after this event and I LOVE them so much. So even though this photo shows a ribbed flute, I highly recommend these smooth sided single piece plastic flutes, that are so nice I hand wash and reuse them over and over again.

Pro-Tip: You can pre-scoop the sherbet and add liquids to the flutes as guests arrive OR You can prepare a full punch bowl. Both options are listed on the recipe card.

Mix Your Sunset Non-Alcoholic Punch
