Here is a festive green St. Patrick's Day drink, for those of us who will not be drinking the green beer.
1 pint of lime sherbet
4 Cups of Milk
4 Cups of ginger ale
a few drops of green food coloring (optional)
Place the sherbet in a pitcher or punch bowl and let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes or until it starts to soften. Break up the sherbet with a spoon and add the milk. Stir well. Add the ginger ale and stir. If you would like a brighter color, add a few drops of food coloring.
Other flavors of sherbet can be used for other holidays, such as raspberry would have been nice for Valentine's Day
