Sherbet Punch Recipes FAQs
1. Can these sherbet punch recipes be made in and served from a punch bowl instead? Yes, that is another option. After mixing in the four scoops of sherbet, add the remaining scoops of sherbet to the punch so that they are floating on the top. Slowly fill the rest of the punch bowl with the lemon-lime soda.
2. Can I make this sherbet punch ahead of time? Yes! That is why I love making this sherbet punch recipe. The punch in the pitcher can be stored in the fridge until ready to serve. Just give it a good stir after removing from the fridge. And since a scoop of sherbet and fresh lemon-lime soda is added to each cup, everyone will still get that frothy goodness!
3. Is there a way to make a lighter sherbet punch? To lighten up your sherbet punch, use Crystal Light for the juice and diet lemon-lime soda.
4. What should I do if the punch is too sour/strong? Add more lemon-lime soda to dilute the punch.
5. What kind of lemon-lime soda should I use? The brand isn’t important in this case. You can use 7-Up, Sprite, Sierra Mist, or the store brand lemon-lime soda. Ginger ale would also work in all of these punch recipes.

I made this recipe for our school’s graduation tonight and it was enjoyed by all. Being in another country that does not have all these specific ingredients caused a little creativity: adding sugar to the sugarless mango concentrate that is available and then needing to add more water to that concentrate than the original recipe says (it helped to think that in the original recipe, the frozen concentrate would be ready to drink once the water was added). I made one recipe up the night before with just the two cups of Sprite, and froze it in sour cream containers to use as our ice. I didn’t notice any downside to having frozen the Sprite. A combined mango lime sherbert went perfectly with the mango Sprite combination. We served from a punch bowl – so all the Sprite was added to the bowl instead of filling individual glasses. All together we made 2 1/2 recipes (but with the two extra cups of water per recipe that our concentrate required) and served approx. 50 people.
