Refreshing and creamy!

Mar 16, 2011

While this is good and pretty refreshing, I didn't need a "recipe" for it and it's not really new. I made it because of the raspberry sherbet & thought it would be different. But I got one of those raspberry/lime/orange combo's and also tried it with the other two flavors of sherbet. All of them really tasted about the same - it basically tasted like the Sprite I used. Years ago (before I cut back to drinking very little soda), I used to pour 7up over orange sherbet in a mug. This tastes pretty much the same. For those who need to worry about how many servings this really makes, this will not fit into 10 8-oz glasses. If you divide it down, that's just short of 7 oz liquid and bit over 3/4 c. sherbet per glass. And that doesn't even come close to fitting an 8 oz. glass. This will fit more like 16 8-oz glasses, or 8 16-oz glasses since a big glass makes a nicer float. (Approximately.)

I used raspberry and lime sherbet in the floats. Really tasty and pretty as well.

I used Fresca soda. Absolutely delicious. All four of us fell in love with it.
