I’m not sure when I first had punch with sherbet included but man, is it good or what? Picture it- you stroll into a baby shower, St. Patrick’s Day brunch, whichever- and you see the punch bowl with yummy sherbet. It’s seriously so good and so simple- one of those things that you just throw together and it wows everyone at your get together. You can do so many different color combinations, but specifically today we’re sharing our green Shamrock Punch for St. Patrick’s Day. You only need 2 ingredients, so let’s get into it.

Shamrock Punch Ingredients
As I mentioned, you only need TWO ingredients to make this punch. I also add a smidge of a 3rd ingredient for festivity- is that a word? But this is seriously so simple and inexpensive to make. The perfect beverage for your party spread. To make your Shamrock Punch you’ll need Sprite. If you prefer you could use a different lemon-lime soda, such as Sierra Mist- whatever you prefer. Then, you’ll need lime flavored sherbet (we LOVE Mayfield sherbet). It’s green and just perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and mixing with the lemon-lime soda. I also added just a couple of drops of green food coloring to really get the green color popping in the punch bowl.
How to Make Shamrock Punch with Lime Sherbet
It obviously doesn’t get any easier than this- we’re going to take our lime sherbet, and our ice cream scoop and scoop all of the sherbet into our punch bowl. Then, we pour the soda over top. Optionally, we add our food coloring. Then, give it a little stir and toss in a ladle for serving. As the sherbet begins to melt into the soda, it will really start mixing together and create that yummy soda/sherbet mix.
To make this Shamrock Punch, these supplies might come in handy-
