WFMW- My Favorite Punch Recipe

It seems that whenever there is a bridal or baby shower at our church- I am asked to make the punch... Know why? Because I make killer punch... Seriously- I have a no-fail-you-can't-mess-it-up-super-easy recipe. And in honor of today's Works For Me Wednesday, I'm going to share it with you...

For each batch of punch you'll need-
2 two liter bottles of lemon lime soda (generic brand is fine)
1/4- 1/2 gallon of sherbet (use more or less according to your taste)

That's it! Just pour the soda in your punch bowl, add some ice, and scoop the sherbet into it. The sherbet will melt and color your punch, plus it gets a little foamy. It's pretty and yummy too! (I have actually had people ask if they could take leftover punch home after an event).

The other great thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever flavor sherbet you like- except rainbow sherbet (it turns a very unappetizing brown...). If you are having a baby shower for a baby girl, use raspberry sherbet for a pretty, pink punch. For a boy I use lemon-lime. You could also go with pineapple for yellow. I have also matched with the brides colors for a bridal shower... Anyway- you get the picture.

So that's what works for me! Head on over to Don't Try This at Home where Melanie is guest hosting while Shannon blogs from Uganda for more Works For Me Wednesday tips and tricks...

Yum! We just had this punch at somebody's 50th wedding anniversary party, and the kids loved it so much, they requested it for our family Valentine's Day love fest. We're going to do the raspberry sherbet with 7-up and then add a few little frozen berries to float around and look pretty.

My mom's favorite punch is i bottle 7 Up and one bottle white grape juice. It's called Baptist Punch ;)

How can something as simple as punch be so yummy?

Have you ever made that punch that tastes like a Frappachino? It's decadent.
