How To Make Polyjuice Potion
This recipe could be any easier. First, scoop the lime sherbet into a large punch bowl or drink dispenser. Then, slowly pour in the lemon-lime soda and ginger ale. Depending on the color you want, you can add a few drops of green food coloring here while stirring gently. Serve it immediately with more lime sherbet and whipped cream on top.
Frequently Asked Questions
What If I Can’t Find Lime Sherbet?
Lime sherbet gives the drink a green hue, as well as some fun froth. If you can’t find lime sherbet specifically, you can always add rainbow sherbet or lemon sherbet. Alternatively, you can also make your own. It would be especially easy if you have an ice cream maker! Just combine lime juice, lime zest, half and half, and sugar. Pour into your ice cream maker and follow the directions for sherbet in your manufacturer’s guide.
Can I Make It Ahead of Time?
For this particular recipe, it’s best to prepare it immediately before serving. The best part is getting that frozen, frothy deliciousness from the sherbet and soda combination. Preparing it ahead of time could cause a loss of carbonation in the soda, or result in the sherbet melting too much.
Can I Add Alcohol?
One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s completely kid-friendly. However, you can absolutely add some liquor to this drink to jazz it up a little bit! You can really add any liquor to the mix, but some good options would be tequila, rum, or a lime-flavored vodka.
