SHERBET: You can substitute strawberry or raspberry sherbets for the rainbow sherbet ice cream.
LIMEADE: You can substitute thawed cherry limeade for plain limeade.
SOFT DRINKS: Instead of using a liter of Sprite or 7UP lemon-lime soda, your favorite brand of ginger ale would be an excellent option for a unique and different flavor.
ICE CREAM: For a bit more fun, add a few scoops of vanilla ice cream along with the scoops of rainbow sherbet to make a creamsicle-type punch.
ALCOHOL: You could add champagne or white rum to this fizzy drink to create a rainbow punch cocktail.
HOW TO MAKE THIS RAINBOW SHERBET RECIPE
If you have a smaller punch bowl or smaller number of guests, you can cut this recipe in half for a smaller batch.
STEP ONE: Using a large punch bowl, add the 6 ounces of thawed limeade, Hawaiian punch, and lemon-lime soda.
To keep your punch cold for an extended period of time, you could freeze some orange juice or even Hawaiian Punch into ice cubes so that as it melts, the punch doesn’t get watered down.
STEP TWO: Just before serving, add the scoops of sherbet into the punch. Serve immediately.
Set up a tray of punch cups with fun and colorful rainbow straws to make your delicious drink extra fun.
HOW TO SERVE
Add a punch bowl of this tasty drink to your serving table for birthday parties, a bridal shower, holiday celebrations, or summertime gatherings. You could also whip up a batch of our iced tea or our southern strawberry sweet tea as another fun drink to offer.
IN THE FRIDGE: If you wanted to make your rainbow punch a couple of hours ahead of time, you can. Just wait to pour soda in and add the sherbet until right before serving it and cover your punch bowl with plastic wrap. You can also store any leftovers in the refrigerator, but it loses any fizz, and the sherbet melts very quickly.
