Love your lime sherbet punch recipe mrs.Paula Deen. My husband"s family is using it this weekend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party using raspberry sherbet. Everyone loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Highly Recommend! Mint sherbet was not available. I substituted rainbow with some green food coloring. It was a huge hit. I also substituted frozen strawberries for the marichino cherries. It will be a go to punch for the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This punch is pretty much a standard at all my holiday parties. Whether its a more health conscious crowd or not, my punch bowl is always empty at the end of the party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my grandsons high school graduation open house, everyone loved it! They couldn't get enough, thank you for a great yet simple recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not only did the kids LOVE it but the adults enjoyed it the most. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this punch this past weekend for my "Game Night" celebration! Everyone loved it, including the adults and children. I will make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my family's go to punch. I want to try an adult version, but I don't know whether to go with vodka or champagne. Also, I don't know the quantities. Any help? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made it for the kids on Christmas, and it was a BIG hit! Possibly a bit too sweet for grown-ups (maybe replace ginger ale with club soda...or something stiffer, but kids love it, and it's so festive. I would let the sherbet melt first before adding because it looked very "gloppy" for a long time. I also did an ice ring with just water and maraschino cherries...yum. PS- I also did this once on Halloween with a bit of dry ice to make "witches brew"... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This punch is always a hit anywhere you serve it, weddings, showers, parties. It is same punch that my mother used for years. Ingredients can be found in almost any grocery store and mixes quickly and easily. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Paula Deen and food network. So so good. My spouse was a bit sceptical, but he is so happy I persisted. Yum. We may try it with vodka or champange added, on Christmas. I could not find plain lime sherbert, so made it with Dreyers tropical sherbert mix of lime, pineapple, orange(? and Rasberry. And I did not have a punch bowl, so figured out that my cake stand is also a punch bowl with a bit of on line searching, the top handle fits into the bottom when you turn it upside down. Had it for over twenty years and did not know that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
YUM! A holiday favorite that everyone looks for year after year. I learned to buy the lime sherbert in advance since the stores sell out around the holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!! Easy too. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is the best punch ever. We always had this for Christmas when I was a child. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG, PAULA. THIS IS THE SAME PUNCH I HAD FOR MY FIRST BABY SHOWER. IT'S THE BEST PUNCH EVER. I ALSO LOVE IT WITH RASBERRY SHERBET AND ASSORTED BERRIES ON TOP WITH PINEAPPLE SLICES. LOVE YOU AND THE SHOW! C.C. FROM CALIFORNIA item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for this past New Year's party for all the non-alcoholic drinkers and it was so good. If one wanted, they could easily add champagne or I'm thinking vodka to it. I will be making this again during the weekend for a BBQ I'm hosting for the neighbors. I might try out another sherbet flavor this time...or just do it lime again. =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
OKay, wow, I will actually use this space for what it is intended...REVIEW THE RECIPE. This punch is great, grew up on recipe identical to this.....we can expect it every Thanksgiving. You can do ORANGE SHERBET instead of the lime if you wish (subsitute orange slices instead of the lime/lemon) very good...even putting half sherbet and half Vanilla Ice cream gives a very smooth sweet taste...kinda like a dreamciscle. AND ladies, c'mon. ..we don't need to use this space to blog or bicker... The only people Ball-sy enough to call out Paula Dean on her cooking methods are those with some sick fear of "REALLY" cooking....and we ALL know EVERYONE licks the spoon.....and if they don't, maybe they should stop with the long pause during their first bite of the finished meal and ask themsleves......WHY DOESNT THIS TASTE RIGHT?? Their IS a reason SOUTHERN food is SOUL food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I support Paula Deen and her methods of mixing. She is great and so full of energy! My family is Southern and we have used our hands to mix recipes for as long as I can remember. Not because we can't afford utensils or electrical mixers, but because it allows us to feel where pockets of unmixed food might be and because it is more thorough. There is nothing GROSS or CLASSLESS about mixing with your hands because we southerners wash our hands before cooking! And about licking the spoon...why wouldn't you want to taste the food before it is served. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never made a punch this way and it was quite good i added a little more pineapple juice and i couldn't find lime sherbet so i used lemon instead and it came out good thanks paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am thinking of adding white wine to the recipe. Any suggestions? It is for my sprinkle and I want a light punch for the ladies to enjoy with a hint of alcohol and less costly than my usual red sangria which is too strong for an afternoon sprinkle anyway. Add wine, or champagne, or replace an ingredient with the alcohol of choice?? ~Mel item not reviewed by moderator and published
Are you ladies replacing the ginger ale with champagne, or adding the champagne in addition to the ginger ale? Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made similar punches like this before - lemon sherbert is wonderful -- but when I added the champayne - sheer heaven!! Love this stuff. As to the fuss budgets who have to criticize - please. Paula is wonderful and mixing with hands is what GOOD cooks do. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i guess alot of u arent from the south all of us use out hand to cook with u can mix better with ur hands then ur spoon if u dont like paula deen then dont watch her i love her get a life instead of coming on here gripping cause u cant sook like a southner!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
To "LICKS THE SPOON"--it is so frustrating for people like you to use this forum to criticize the celebrity cooks/chefs on a personal level. This is supposed to be where you rate the recipes, you idiot!!!! Paula is one of the most popular celebrity cooks on this network and my personal FAVORITE!! She is on TV and YOU are not. If you don't like her (and you probably don't like many people) then DON'T WATCH HER!! And, certainly don't take your frustrations out in this forum. I made this recipe and it is amazing as is all of her recipes. Keep keeping on Paula--we love you!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added 2 bottles of champagne and everyone loved it!!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you for this recipe! My guests called it the "ice cream soup". It not just tastes great, it looks great too! I will make this again for smaller get togethers too, I will use half of everything becase it is a huge portion! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have a party on Saturday and my husband bought Pineapple Sherbet instead of Lime, (by mistake) I was wondering if the Pineapple would be good as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this punch at my sister's baby shower and the guests loved it so much, I had to go back to the grocery store so that I could make another bowl! I still didn't get to taste it that day... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hello. I made this punch for my husband Captain party. I did 8 liters and I was surprise to see that people were turning the glass bolw to finish it. Everyone ask me for the recipie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a variation on my usual punch to take to a baby shower when I found this one. It was super easy and YUMMY! Everyone at the shower raved about it and asked for the recipe (which cracks me up because it was so simple to make!). One lady had so many cups she even commented that she wondered if there was a 12-step program for punch drinkers. Not a drop left! I even stir it up and keep it in the fridge for my kids. They love it too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an absolutely wonderful punch! I have made it three times now for bridal showers. Each time I have made 3 or 4 bowls full. The women just love it! Thanks for the great recipes and keep them coming! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My absolute favorite. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was throwing a bridal shower recently and came across this recipe while searching for a simple punch. Why did I choose it? The simple fact that it called for lemons and limes, which is the bride's theme for her wedding! I was VERY hesitant for fear people wouln't like it because it was lime flavored...not exactly the most popular choice. Well, it was a good thing I brought enough for 2 batches...everyone loved it, including the bride! Just an FYI...one batch fits perfectly into a standard punch bowl...don't try making a double batch to start. Just make your second when the bowl gets low. Now I'm going to try it with orange juice and play with different flavors of sherbert! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It wasn't the best punch I've ever had, but it was good. I didn't notice anyone going back for seconds, which says a lot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best punch ever! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it! Yummy! My mother had this at her wedding in 1976. I'm getting married on New Years Eve this year, and I'm having it at my wedding! When the caterer asked what kind of drinks we wanted, I immediately said "that lime sherbet punch!" and she laughed and said "Classic! I had it at my wedding! I love that stuff!" My mother said, "I had it at mine too!" And now I can say I had it at mine. Even though it's just punch, it's cool to think about how 'timeless' and classic it is! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula deen is incredible, and so is this recipe (LICKING SPOONS or NOT.) It's part of her bubbly, interesting, and outgoing personality. PLUS, your not the one thats consuming her food that she PERSONALLY makes for HER FAMILY. Don't act like you've never done that before or even shared a cup or a spoon with your children or family. ANYWAYS. PAULA IS AWESOME!!! =] item not reviewed by moderator and published
....Paula licking her spoon, why do you even watch her show? Anyway, I remember this punch from back in the 50's and 60's but had forgotten about it. I served it at a shower recently and everyone loved it. I'll put this permanently in my recipe box so I don't forget about it again. Thanks, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When we made this punch for the first time we ran out. People loved it so much. Now we just make a double patch. We really don't buy soda. Maybe a couple bottles as a back up. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made this punch for a baby shower (the lemons & limes worked perfectly with the green & yellow color scheme) and everyone LOVED it. I made 2 punch bowls and they wanted more!

I made this for a Halloween party and all the kids loved it. It was a little sweet for me, the next time I might decrease the amount of pineapple juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had this at my wedding, was fantastic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Easter, to take to my Aunt's house. Everyone LOVED it and got 2 or 3 servings...and when it was gone they wanted more. The great thing about this punch is that it is not too sweet - some punches are just sickeningly sweet--not this one. Fantastic. Easy to make...I took all the stuff in a medium size cooler and prepared in it minutes at my Aunt's. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just know this recipe is going to be fantastic so I rated it high before I even make it. I do have a question for anyone that cares to answer. I just watched the show and Im thinking that Paula used apple juice and orange juice but the recipe calls for Ginger Ale and orange juice? Can someone clarify this for me, please. I want to make it the right way when I do make it. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like Paula, this punch was served at my small (but memorable) wedding. It was a sweet start to a 28 year (and counting) marriage. This is a wonderful punch without being overly sweet. Can make it with pineapple, orange, or raspberry sherbet, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My guest loved this punch and inquired about the recipe-they couldn't get enough of it. Very refreshing and tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
