I went to a baby shower for my niece a few weeks ago, and I thought this punch was just the cutest! It has to be the first time I've ever used the word cute to describe a drink!
Recipe for Lime Punch:
And I really wish I had come up with this idea to throw the ducks in there, but alas! I did not! Oh well. But at least I can credit for taking the picture!
And to top off this cuteness, the punch was also quite tasty! I have to admit, when it comes to punch and other fruity drinks, I'm quite picky. I either like it, or I hate it. But this was really yummy, and it was so simple tasting that I think anyone would love it. And I learned that's also quite simple to make with only two ingredients! Yay!
1/2 gallon lime sherbet
1 (2 liter) Sprite or 7-up
Directions: Spoon out sherbet into large punch bowl and pour sprite over it. Mix and serve immediately. Chill additional punch in the refrigerator or freezer.
Tips: While browsing different punch recipes, I saw different variations where they used a gallon of sherbet to one bottle of Sprite and even 2 bottles of Sprite to the half gallon of sherbet. So I'd suggest doing a trial run of this so you can play with and see how you like it best before serving it at a party.
Cooks.com has lots of versions of this where they add in everything from frozen limeade and pineapple juice to vodka. I also love the look of Paula Deen's
recipe, if you're looking for something a little more "adult" yet non-alcholic.
