  1. It looks good. But would it taste as good if you used say, Sparkling apple cider instead of an alcoholic beverage. Could you make in non alcoholic?

    1. I would use sparkling white grape juice, if you are wanting non-alcoholic. Its much closer in flavor to champagne than sparkling cider.

    2. or maybe use sprite. another suggestion the non alcoholic champagne they offer at new year would work

    3. Try sparkling pear juice - it works beautifully as a substitute for champagne!

  14. Here it is nearly December 2012 and no one has posted that they actually made this. I'm not sure I actually know what sparkling fruit punch is. Most fruit punch I've tasted is far too sweet and artificial (chemical) tasting and more suitable for children's taste than adults

    1. Thank you so much for writing! In the recipe above it actually says fruit punch not sparkling fruit punch.
      It is sweet and may not be for everyone but you should give it a try! It is delicious in MY opinion.

  20. I just made this for an Easter party and all our guests RAVED about it. It was honestly everyone's favorite dish. We had one with this recipe and a "virgin" one (made with sparkling white grape juice) for the kids.

    To those asking about what kind of punch, we used a big bottle of fruit punch soda so that it was extra bubbly.

    Oh, and we used peeps as garnish instead of fruit :D

  22. Is there another sherbet that could be substituted and still taste as good?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I used a strawberry sherbet and it turned out wonderfully. Also, I hardly ever use ginger ale, so as to not waste it I actually purchased 7up instead since my family drinks that.
