Pink Punch recipe

Pink punch Recipe

Our family has so many “favorite” recipes… favorite cookies, favorite lasagna, favorite marinade, favorite brownies – you name it! Once we try a recipe we LOVE, we keep it and use it over and over again.

This next recipe is no different. It is, by far, our family’s favorite drink. It doesn’t have an official name so I’m going to call it Pineapple Pink Lemonade Soda (aka the Pink Drink!) We have it at most family functions because it’s easy, it’s SO refreshing, and it is SO yummy. It only requires three ingredients and can be made in a minute, which is also a bonus. 🙂

I can’t remember where we got the recipe because we’ve been having it for years, but I can promise you this – if you try it, you’ll LOVE it! It is so yummy to drink on a hot summer day especially because it is quite refreshing.

Recipe Notes + Variations

Just a few notes about this recipe…

  • There’s a measuring scoop that comes with the lemonade can. Don’t use that to measure the powder. Instead use an actual 1 cup measuring cup. 
  • Do not mix the powder with water as stated on the can. You are only using the lemonade powder.
  • If you add the powder last then it will fizz so much that it overflows.
  • It can be a little tricky to read the ingredient for sprite on the recipe card. You will need one 2 liter of sprite.
  • Make sure pineapple juice and sprite are cold. Starting with cold liquids will reduce the amount of ice you need and in turn reduces how watered down the punch may get.

CHANGE IT UP. We typically use this recipe every time, but I do admit that we’ve changed up the lemonade a few times to try different flavors. Sometimes, we use:

  • Regular Yellow Lemonade Mix
  • Blue Raspberry Lemonade Mix
  • Cherry Limeade Lemonade Mix

The pink lemonade will always be our favorite, but we also love the variety the other lemonade mixes make. 😉

How to Make it a Slushy

Turn this drink into a slushy. It makes a refreshing treat on a hot summer day. 

  • Mix up the punch recipe or use leftover punch. 
  • Fill a quart size ziploc with punch. Seal completely.  (Not all the punch can fit so you’ll need to work in batches)
  • Place the punch bag into a gallon ziploc. Fill it with ice and rock salt. You will need 1tbsp salt for every 11 large ice cubes. Seal the gallon bag closed. 
  • Shake the bag for 5 minutes or until the punch turns to a slushy texture. 
  • If it takes much longer than 5 minutes then your ice bag isn’t cold enough. Drain liquid and add more salt and ice. 
  • Tip: the bag gets pretty cold so I suggest putting on gloves or mittens.

Baby Shower Punch + Making ahead

Any time we make this recipe for functions, I’m always asked what’s in it. After I tell them, someone almost always says “I had this at a baby shower before.” It’s true – it’s super popular for showers, so it’s also known as the baby shower punch. Whatever you call, we promise it will be a hit at your next get together. The flavors and carbonation make it so addicting!

Presentation: This punch looks so delicious and pretty in a glass pitcher, bowl or beverage dispenser. To really make it shine add sliced lemon rounds and pineapple rings. You can even include strawberries, raspberries or cranberries. 

Making ahead of time: you can mix the pineapple juice with the lemonade powder and keep it refrigerated for 2-3 days. You can also keep it in the freezer for at least 3 months. Thaw if needed and add the sprite just before serving. 

Leftovers: Store leftover punch in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Be aware that the carbonation in the soda will diminish with storage.

    1. I can guarantee your kids will love this!! It’s always a hit at every function and I personally love that it’s so easy to make. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Cathy!

          1. So is the recipe above correct? Is it doubled? Is that why it says to use 2L of Sprite?

  1. I am going to try this out tomorrow. I couldn’t find it at the Sobeys (canada super market) here but i did find frozen pink lemonade so heres hoping it works the same!

    1. Im planning to use this recipe for a 90th bi party. You really do mean an 8 oz cup of pInk lemonade in the recipe and not the little”cUp” inside the lemonade container, right??? Stupid ques, i kNow, but i assumed a real CUp in another recipe…it was not supp to be a real cup! Laugh.

  2. Hi, I made this tonight for a church activity. It was delicious. I thought I would add a note. I mixed the pineapple juice and Sprite first and then added the powder. This caused a chemical reaction and the punch fizzed up and over the punch bowl. Luckily I was right near a sink. It was quite funny.

      Hi the same thing happened to me sat night. I added the powder to the liquid and POOF it exploded over the top. Luckily we were on the patio and we just washed it down.
      The drink itself was delicious
      Thank you

  3. This looks so delicious! I bet, even with the soda in it, it tastes so refreshing! Thanks for sharing.

    I’d love it if you would also consider sharing this at my Pinworthy Projects Party {link in the CommentLuv section}.

  4. Wow! That’s a lot of carbs. . .pure sugar. I will try to cut that down. I don’t want any of my family drinking that much sugar. It sounds delicious, I will try to see how I can change.

    1. Sara, that’s what I’m thinking. Every component is high sugar! But it does sound good. Did you lighten it up without using an artificial sweetner?

  5. 5 stars
    I must say, these recipes are great. In my neck of the woods these recipes are totally appropriate right now, so thank you! Also, the images are fantastic… 🙂

  6. I made this today but the store was out of pink lemonade mix so I used black cherry lemonade mix! I love it and hopefully my babies and everyone do too at the July 4th picnic tonight!

  7. Wow, it looks so fresh and delicious. At my place, summer is coming and it becomes hotter these days. Can’t wait to make it for my family! Thanks for sharing <3

  8. I made this using a whole 2-liter (sugar free) instead of 1 liter, and it was delicious. I served it to a party of adults, and everyone had seconds, including my husband, who’s not a big punch fan. Our house guests even had some for breakfast the next morning!

    1. Don’t know an exact number, but it should be enough for 16 people. I always double the recipe for parties, only because it’s so good & you’ll want more 🙂 Have fun!

  9. I have a question…..
    Do i make l pink lemonade 1st with water then add the juice and sprite?
    Or do i mix the powder to the sprite and juice?

    1. No, don’t make pink lemonade first. You add the powder to the juice & I like to add the sprite or 7up right before I serve it. Hope that helps and hope you like it!! It’s our favorite go-to drink!

  10. I will powerfully say that this can be my all time favorite drink currently. I even have been quite addicted to this. i do know drinking ample soda isn’t sensible however what to try and do this summer heat desires American state to drink it.

    Am currently making this for the second time for a baby shower however we used sharkleberry fin koolaid mix in place of the lemonade & we much prefer it that way vs the original recipe posted here (we tried it the original way also) thanks for the inspiration!

    This was my first try AT a baby shower punch and it was amazing!! I PUT TWO MEN IN CHARGE OF MAKING AND SERVING THE PUNCH! THEY COULDN’T BELIEVE HOW EASY IT WAS TO MAKE – AND THE COMPLIMENTS THEY RECEIVED WERE OUTSTANDING!

    tHANK YOU 🙂

    I made the pink lemonade soda Last week for dinner and my family has fallen in love with this drink.. I now have to make a gallon once a week.

    quick, easy, inexpensive the cost to make two recipes was approximately $10.00. Made for an afternoon tea for seniors. Everyone enjoyed it and asked for recipe. One commented that it wasn’t sweet as as most punch but very refreshing.
    I do advise to make sure you put lemonade powder in container first before adding liquid ingredients. The CARBONATION from sprite causes a reaction with powder and it will fizz – possibly spilling out from the container.
    This will become a favorite at our parties. I will try with other flavors of Lemonade.

  18. When it says one cup lemonade mix do you mean one actual measured cup or is it one scoop from the lemonAde box.

    This is my family’s favorite drink!! We make it anytime we have guests or for holidays or all summer long! It is so tasty & refreshing!

    Growing up my dad WOULD pour sprite into kool aid for a special dinner treat for my family of 9. This elevated recipe is so good. I’m going to make this for his upcoming birthday dinner.

    Our most favorite drink of all times. We practically serve it every sunday. Sometimes i’ll ChaNge it up and use regular lemonade.

    My daughter made this the other day for a church party and everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe! So refreshing

  23. Hi KRISTYN,

    i live in Australia and UNFORTUNATELY, I don’t have access to country time pink lemonade mix (or any lemonade powder mix for that matter). i can HOWEVER find kool-aid SACHETS. WHAT SORT OF RECIPE WOULD YOU SUGGEST ME TRY WITH THE KOOL AID? I have never had KOOL-AID before so am unsure what flavour or how many sachets to get. It is for a pink baby shower and i was hoping to double or even triple the recipe.

    Thanks!

    1. Sorry, you can’t find it there. I have not tried this with kool-aid, but it might still be yummy! Maybe do a trial run first 🙂 There is one cup of lemonade mix, so you could just do a cup of kool-aid mix, equal measurements. There is a pink lemonade flavor, so I’d do that one. Good luck!

    Hi, I saw where you said you had done this with blue raspberry too? What mix did you use for this? I am trying to make a pink lemonade and blue for my gender reveal this weekend but I don’t know what to use. 🙂

    I MADE THIS FOR MY SISTER’S BABY SHOWER YESTERDAY, FOLLOWING YOUR RECIPE TO EXACT MEASUREMENTS, AND EVERYONE LOVED IT. I DIDN’T ADD ICE, BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT IT TO WATER DOWN OVER THE DURATION OF THE PARTY, BUT I HAD A BOWL OF ICE NEXT TO IT TO ADD TO CUPS. I ALSO ADDED SOME FROZEN PINEAPPLE CHUNKS TO TOP OFF THE PUNCH, WHICH HELPED TO KEEP IT COOL FOR A WHILE. IT LOOKED BEAUTIFUL AND TASTED EVEN BETTER. I WILL DEFINITELY USE THIS RECIPE AGAIN AND AGAIN!

  26. Quick question – is the pink lemonade mix to be used supposed to be something like the Country Time brand lemonade mixes (that are pre-sweetened)? thanks!
