Swamp Water Punch: made with limeade, ginger ale, pineapple juice, and lime ice cream or sherbet it makes a creamy fizzy swampy punch.
When we decided on The Princess and the Frog movie for our first Disney Princess dinner and movie night, we knew swamp water punch would be the perfect addition. Much of the Princess and the Frog takes places in the swamp lands of Louisiana. The scenery is beautiful with fireflies, water lilies, mossy trees, and cat tails… along with green swampy water. This was the inspiration for our drinks.
We wanted our swamp water drink to be the perfect disgusting swamp-green color and foamy so we added ice cream and pop for that fizzy, creamy swamp effect. It’s also so yummy, and kids love it. It’s one of my favorite easy recipes for a party
More Options and Alternatives
I had trouble finding lime sherbet where I live, but I did find lime ice cream at Baskin Robbins, which worked great and was delicious. If you can find lime sherbet, it would work great too. If you can’t find either of these, you could use vanilla ice cream with some green food coloring as an alternative.
I wanted the drink to be green so I used limeade as a base. The pineapple juice adds sweetness, but it does yellow the drink, so I only added a little. You could also add a little green food coloring, to make it more green as well. Some people like to use orange juice and make it an orange juice punch, including the orange juice pulp for more of the swampy effect. We liked the taste of the pineapple juice better, but orange juice is an option if you prefer.
We made our punch in individual glasses for our party, which worked great, and helped them stay fizzy. You could also make a large punch bowl of the swamp water punch instead, and guests could help themselves, or make it in a large pitcher.
You can also add ice cubes and even gummy worms to everyone’s glass as a swampy garnish.
Using Dry Ice
For a punch bowl you might even want to add some dry ice for a foggy effect. This would be especially fun for a Halloween party. To create this effect you will want to use two plastic punch bowls, one smaller than the other. Put the swamp water punch in the smaller bowl with a ladle for guests to help themselves. The small bowl will sit inside of the larger bowl. In the larger bowl add your dry ice. This will prevent your guests from accidently having any dry ice in their swamp juice glass. Be sure to use a clean rubber glove to handle the ice as it can harm your skin if in direct contact. To activate the ice for the party, just pour a little warm water on top.
