Recipe for Blue Punch Ingredients List 

Ocean blue punch is the perfect drink for your ocean themed party or blue themed party.  It is a great way to celebrate for birthday parties, baby showers, or even classroom fun to celebrate the color blue. 

The ingredients for the ocean water punch are simple.  Here is the list of ingredients:

Clear Container

First find the cup or container in which you will be making the punch.  You will want to use a clear container so that you can enjoy the view. 

Nerds Candy

The Nerds make the perfect colorful bottom of the ocean.  The nerds look like coral in the sea or the bottom of a fish tank. 

Ice Cubes

The ice cubes are multi-functional holding the ice cubes in place, cooling the drink, and adding volume to the cup. 

Swedish Fish

You will only need 2 or 3 Swedish fish to add that vibrant red fish swimming in the blue water of the ocean. 

Blue Color

For the blue color, I added blue jello mix.  However, you can use blue food coloring if you want. 

Clear Beverage or Clear Soda

Use a flavored lemon-lime soda to add the bubbly effect. In the pictures, I used a lemon ginger Olipop drink, and it was fantastic. Any clear beverage will work for this, however, the bubbles give a great effect.

Serving Your Easy Blue Punch Recipe for Kids

The most important thing to remember about making this blue punch recipe is that it should be made when you are ready to drink it. 

The reason is because the longer the drink sets, the colors from the candies will start to melt into the liquid.  As the colors melt, they make a mixed color which results in a green swampy color. 

Keeping that important information in mind about timing, let’s figure out how you will be serving the punch. 

If you want to serve the punch from a large punch bowl or large punch dispenser, just keep the blue liquid in those containers.  

You can add the nerds to the bottom of the empty cups, mason jars, or clear glass which will be ready for service time.
