Valentine’s Punch

1 liter of Raspberry sherbet 1/4 cup of pineapple juice 2-liter Sprite

Put the sherbet in the punch bowl, it works best if it is half melted. Next add your pineapple juice. Wisk them together making a smooth texture. Last, add the sprite slowly, mixing continuously until the punch bowl is full. This punch tastes great and you can use different colors of sherbet for different occasions. (ie. Lime for St. Patrick’s Day)
