Lime Green Punch

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! 

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!

Recipe for Lime Punch:

Ingredients:
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.
Add Ins:  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.

I’m linking up at these parties.

    The ducks look like they're drunk. Are you sure the drink wasn't spiked? (I'm kidding. LOL)

  22. Cute! But, you need to also add in 1 big can of pineapple juice, and instead of Sprite or 7 Up, use regular Ginger Ale. You can thank me after you drink its awesomeness!! :)

  23. I used to have this punch a lot when I was little! All the kids would just gaggle over to get a glass or 5! That is really cute having the ducks in there! :D
