On a hot summer day, few things cool you down like ice cream, especially the smooth, silky taste of sherbet. Sherbet ice cream is also popular to use in punchbowl recipes. Sherbet comes in many flavours, such as orange, lime, strawberry and pineapple.
Rainbow sherbet is a combination of flavours and works great in punch recipes. Sherbet also goes well for speciality cocktail drinks.

- For the non-alcoholic punch, experiment with different flavoured sodas instead of ginger ale; try strawberry or pineapple flavoured soda.
- You can use rainbow sherbet in the cocktail recipe instead of orange, but the colours of the mix of liqueurs give the cocktail its rainbow colour; the rainbow sherbet may not look as appealing mixed with the liqueurs.
