Pineapple Sherbet Punch (My Version)


Invite

Today we're celebrating a surprise virtual baby shower for one of my blog friends, Tiffany from The Austin Family Diary!

Tiffany found my blog about a year ago and sent me an e-mail because we're both dental hygienists - and I was so happy she decided to start her own blog a few weeks later!  It's been fun following along with her blog the last year, and I've especially enjoyed reading about her pregnancy after she announced it several months ago!  



Her baby boy is due in May, and Kaitlyn organized a virtual baby shower for her - I had never hear of the concept before, but decided to join in.  So in honor of Tiffany's virtual baby shower, I want to share a recipe for Pineapple Punch.

I found this recipe for my sister's baby shower a few months ago, and I tweaked it a bit until it was how I liked.  You can see the original recipe here, but here is my recipe for Pineapple Punch after my tweaking.

Ingredients You'll Need:

2 quarts pineapple sherbet
1-2 liters Sprite
Seltzer water
Pineapple juice

First of all, you should know that when I make things, I "eye" it - meaning I guestimate ingredients and such.  I just have more fun cooking and making goodies that way.  So I'm just going to explain how to make the punch, and you can all get in on the "guestimating" fun too!

The original recipe suggests using the seltzer water and pineapple juice to pour over the sherbet and create a "foam" before adding the Sprite - but I like some actual sherbet in my punch, so for my version of pineapple punch, just put half the sherbet in a dish and pour some seltzer water over it until it gets good and foamy.  You can refrigerate the foam until you're actually ready to serve the punch.

Right before serving, pull the foamy mixture out of the fridge and add in one or so liters of Sprite and the pineapple juice.  I felt like the amount of pineapple juice suggested in the original recipe wasn't quite enough (at least for me), so just add the pineapple juice to taste.

And finally, here is where I suggest adding the rest of the sherbet with an ice cream scoop - the sherbet will flow on top of the punch and gradually melt, and it makes it extra yummy.

And that's it!  Nice and easy.  And of course you can add some striped paper straws to make it more cute - I got mine from Amazon, and I thought they were pretty reasonably priced at $6.29 for a box of 144 straws!

Congratulations on your little boy, Tiffany, and I can't wait to "meet" him through your blog!  He's going to be cute, I can already tell!
