Hello to all of you! This is Jen from My Daylights and I’m back again this month with a yummy, fizzy, fun drink that will get you in the mood for Spring! Your kids will love making this Lime Fizzy Punch with you and it couldn’t be easier to throw together. It makes the perfect drink for a party too!
With the warmer weather, I’m always excited to start playing with summer flavors again. And it won’t be long before we’re holding family BBQ’s and parties with friends again which is why I wanted to find a new punch to serve. This recipe is from an old family favorite cookbook, though I’ve adjusted it to fit our flavor preference.
The flavors in this drink are tropical and you probably have most of the ingredients already in your refrigerator or pantry! All you need is lime juice, pineapple juice, sugar, lime sherbet, lemon-lime soda, and maraschino cherries. I used the juice from a can of pineapple bites because I couldn’t find just the juice at my local grocery store. It worked just fine!
To start, place the lime juice, pineapple juice, and sugar in a blender or food processor. I used about half of the amount of lime juice called for in the original recipe. I’ve made it with the amount called for and I thought it was too much. If you really like the flavor of lime, you can add more to taste.
Next, add in half of the lime sherbet and reserve the rest until you’re ready to serve the drinks. If you’re making this ahead of time, be sure to keep the reserved sherbet in the freezer! I almost forgot and we would have had a soupy mess. Mix the sherbet and juices together.
It will look like this, nice and frothy. If you’re making this ahead of time, you can refrigerate the mixture until you’re ready to serve.
When it’s party time, grab your glasses and fill them about halfway to 2/3 full with the drink mix. Pour in lemon-lime soda until the glass is almost full. Leave extra room at the top for another scoop of the reserved lime sherbet. You can add more or less mix and soda depending on your taste preferences.
Top it off with a scoop or two of the reserved lime sherbet, a maraschino cherry, and a lime wedge.
This is one of those recipes that can be customized so make it your own! It’s so fun to serve at parties or delicious on a day when you’re longing for the beach and sun!
This would fun to serve on St. Patrick’s Day too! It’s coming up in just a few days and it’s a nice green drink to have as a special treat!
