Sunshine Sherbet Punch

Yum
















We were in full party mode today.   Our little princess was celebrating her birthday and she wanted it to be magical from start to finish.  Well, who am I to deny a birthday girl her wish?  So, this Sunshine Sherbet Punch was one of the many pretty things we had for her birthday.  This punch was a big hit with the kids and the adults.  I made 2 punch bowls worth and it was all gone by the end of the night.  Well, who would say no to a punch that has a lot of ice cream in it. Mmmm... yes it was as good as it sounds.

 Ingredients:
1 tub of 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
Citrus Juice such as V8 Splash (use any citrus punch you like here)
1 large bottle of mango juice
Ice (as needed)
Lemon/Lime Soda (such as 7up or Sprite)
Juice of 1-2 limes (as well as some for garnish)
1 bottle of pineapple juice (I also added some pineapple tidbits from a can to make it more fun for the kids)

Note:  This is more a method than a definite recipe.  Make it to your taste. 

Stir all ingredients well.  You don't have to melt all the ice cream immediately into the punch.  Allow some of it to gradually melt to show there is ice cream in the punch bowl.

Serves a Party.  Enjoy!

  12. I hope your little girl had a fun birthday. I used to make something similar to this at Halloween time for my kids. Adding V-8 is a good idea. I'll be updating my punch recipe.
