The season of graduations and outdoor celebrations is here. It requires a delicious assortment of finger foods, entrees, snacks and accompanying beverages. At our gatherings a family favorite for all ages has always been Sherbet Punch. Sherbet and 7-Up Diet soda are the two ingredients. Whenever we had a celebration this beverage was present. The children, who are now adults, would look forward to seeing our punch bowl filled with foaming, floating, softened orange sherbet. The disposable cups and punch bowl ladle were ready to be used.
The first time that my family enjoyed this beverage was when our oldest son graduated from the fourth grade and it was served in the cafeteria after the ceremony along with cookies. We enjoyed it so much that at our Holiday Buffet the following December our punch bowl was filled with Orange Sherbet Punch. To this day the young adults remember our large punch bowl filled with the orange frothy delicious mixture.
(3) 1 Quart containers of Orange Sherbet (can be Raspberry)
(5-6) Bottles of Diet 7-Up/7- Up Soda (refrigerated)
In a large punch bowl place 1 Quart of Sherbet. Then pour (2) bottles of chilled 7-Up in the punch bowl, pouring some over the sherbet. Stir a little to mix the ingredients. It will result in a frothy top and softened sherbet. Ladle into cups adding some of the softened sherbet. Enjoy!!! Replenish the 7-Up and sherbet as needed.
