Whether your spending your Valentine’s Day weekend with your partner or throwing a party for your child, this Sweetheart Punch will be a hit.
Perfectly sweet, you can easily transform this into an adult drink too.
Mila has loved making pink lemonade lately. I think she likes pouring everything in and stirring it up. So, when I was thinking of a fun Valentine’s Day drink, I knew I had to incorporate those elements to make it fun for her.
This Sweetheart Punch has the typical punch ingredients, but elevated with what gives it some color. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Raspberry Sherbet
- Strawberry Kool-Aid Packet
- Pink Lemonade
- Lemon Juice
- Pink Whitney Vodka (optional for adults)
First, Mila and I made the strawberry lemonade. We mixed one strawberry Kool-Aid packed with pink lemonade mix. We followed the instructions on the container to make all of it. You could also just buy premade pink lemonade and add a packet to it too.
At first, it was really sweet. To make it a little more tart, I added lemon juice in it. This made it taste really good to me and Mila didn’t mind cutting out the sweetness either.
When that’s mixed up really good, it’s time to add in the punch elements.
I start off with putting the raspberry sherbet in a glass. Usually, I just do 1/2 of whatever cup of the sherbet.
Then, I filled up until 3/4 of the cup with the strawberry lemonade. The rest of the cup should be topped off with Sprite. When it’s all filled, I usually give it a little spin.
If you’d want to make this an adult drink, add a shot (or two) of Pink Whitney Vodka when you pour the lemonade in. I love this Vodka and it’s perfect with lemonade. I’ve used this in other recipes I’ve shared on the blog.
This drink turned out tasting amazing. Mila and I both enjoyed it and it was easy to make. I’ll definitely be using this again for Mila’s Valentine’s Day party.
I hope you like it too and update me with your thoughts on it.
