There are so many great ways to celebrate the Easter holiday – from decadent desserts to gooey chocolate candy. But as you’re planning your Easter dinner menu, you can’t forget about the drinks.

I like making fun non-alcoholic holiday punch recipes for special occasions and holidays. Like my Grinch Punch, Shamrock Punch, and Hocus Pocus Punch, this Easter punch is easy to make with a handful of ingredients and is always a big hit at holiday parties.

Ingredients

This section includes ingredient notes and substitution options. Get all measurements, ingredients, and instructions in the printable recipe card at the end of this post.

Carton of Minute Maid Strawberry Lemonade, 2 Liter bottle of Sprite, and half gallon of Strawberry Ice Cream.

You’ll need just a handful of simple ingredients, including:

  • Strawberry lemonade – pink lemonade, fruit punch, or other fruit juices can be substituted, although this can change the color of the drink.
  • Lemon lime soda – such as Sprite or 7-Up. Ginger ale or strawberry soda can be used as well.
  • Strawberry ice cream – raspberry sherbet could be used here, too.
  • Peeps bunny – The perfect topping for your pink party punch.
  • Mini marshmallows – Optional, but fun. We like to call them “bunny tails”.
  • Sprinkles – Pastel sprinkles are another optional, yet festive touch.

How to make Easter punch

This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below. 

This fun Easter drink couldn’t be simpler to make.

Step 1: Add 2 scoops of ice cream to each glass.

Tip: Place the ice cream on the counter and let it sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before beginning. The ice cream will soften slightly making it easier to scoop.

Step 2: Top with strawberry lemonade and lemon-lime soda.

Tip: Pour the soda slowly. The combination of carbonation and dairy will cause the punch to fizz and bubble, which is fun for the kids but could result in a mess if you pour it too quickly.

Step 3: While you could serve the pretty pink punch as-is, I like to add a little bit of Easter flair to the drinks with some mini marshmallow “bunny tails,” a pink Peeps marshmallow bunny, and a pinch of sprinkles.

Recipe FAQ

Can I make this Easter punch ahead of time?

No. Since the punch is made using ice cream, it will melt if made in advance. The best way to prep ahead is to combine the soda and strawberry lemonade in a large pitcher and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve your mocktails. When ready to serve scoop ice cream into the cups and pour the lemonade/soda combination over the top.

How do I keep Easter punch cold?

Ice cubes will water down your punch. Instead, make sure that you use chilled ingredients and your drink will be ice cold from the get-go. Keep the juice and soda in the refrigerator until serving. You can even chill the glasses for a few minutes before preparing your Easter mocktails.

What can I add to make this an Easter cocktail?

Looking for an alcoholic version? Follow the directions as normal and then add vodka to taste. Or, replace the soda with champagne or prosecco for a bubbly cocktail.
