This punch brings back the best memories for me. When we were stationed at Fort Bragg, my very first group of Army wife friends and I were inseparable. We called ourselves “The Posse” and spent just about every waking second together. It was a season of life where the kids were very young, and our husbands spent more nights in the field than at home. We made any excuse to turn an evening together into a party. The Posse Punch was born! I will show you below how to make this a “Petite Posse Punch” for the littles in your life!

What is the difference between sherbet and sorbet?

Sherbet could be described as a little bit ice cream and a little bit sorbet. This fruit flavored frozen dessert includes milk to make it creamy, but not enough to call it ice cream. According to law, sherbet may only contain less than 2% fat. Sorbet is typically brighter in color and is a dairy free treat. You can certainly use raspberry sorbet with this punch if you would like to make it a dairy free drink!

Can you make punch ahead of time?

Because this punch is so incredibly easy to throw together, we suggest that you combine all of the ingredients just before serving. This allows the punch to stay cold and the carbonation of the sparkling water and champagne to keep.
