Sherbet Punch

22 Jun

My daughter is having a birthday party this weekend, and I have been looking for a really good punch recipe.  My husband’s cousin made this punch over Christmas and my daughter loved it.  It had Orange Sherbet in it.  I have looked all over the internet for Sherbet Punch and have found so many variations, I decided to make my own up and post another one from my mom’s church, I believe  it was used at my baby shower.  Here is the one I am going to make for her party, it will be very refreshing and simple.  I have found the simpler, the better, most of the time with kids.

  • 1 – 2 liter bottle of 7-up
  • 1 – 2 liter bottle of ginger ale
  • 2 – cups pineapple juice
  • 1 – gallon rainbow sherbet (you can use any flavor)

Pour pineapple juice and orange juice together in bowl, add about 1/2 of the sherbet in small to medium scoops.  Pour in the 7-Up and enjoy, just add more sherbet as needed.

This will be a nice refreshing summer drink, and best of all caffeine free!  We are having a sleepover, and I would like them to go to sleep eventually.  Below is the recipe used for occasions in my mother’s church.
