Sparkling Sherbet Frappé
- 6 ounces frozen juice concentrate
- 2 cups water
- 2 liters of soda-pop
- 1/2 gallon sherbet
The More You Know. A frappé is a cold, blended, and foamy iced drink. The word frappé is pronounced “frap-pay” and loosely translates from French to “iced”. My favorite way to make a frappé is with soda-pop and sherbet. Sherbet is a frozen dessert made from water, sugar, a dairy product, and flavoring, usually fruity, like lime, orange, or cherry. It has a creamier consistency than sorbet, which is made from fruit juice and sugar. Sherbet isn’t an ice cream because it contains water, instead of the dairy and egg which is typically in ice cream or frozen custard.
Mixing the Base. Begin by blending the frozen juice concentrate with water in a large punch bowl. This creates a fruity foundation for our frappé.
Fizzy Fun. Next, stir in your choice of soda-pop. Whether it’s lemon-lime, ginger ale, or orange, the bubbles add a playful twist!
Scooping the Sherbet. Now for the star of the show: scoop in the sherbet! Whether you choose orange, rainbow, or even vanilla ice cream, it’s like adding a scoop of sunshine.
Serve and Savor. Pour your vibrant creation into cups and serve immediately. Watch the smiles spread as the sherbet fizzes and foams!
Serving Suggestions. Serve this Sparkling Sherbet Frappé in cups, perfect for about 10-15 servings. It’s a fantastic treat for any celebration, especially if you’re looking for something quick, easy, and with a pop of color. For an extra festive touch, garnish with fruit slices or a sprig of mint. Remember, the sherbet is the last-minute guest, so add it right before serving to keep the punch foamy and fresh!
