One of the best things about the holidays is the creative foods and drinks that come along with them. Unfortunately they can also lead to sugar overload. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for indulging in mint chocolate brownies and green cereal treats. After doing so you may want something a little tarter to wash it down. That’s what is so great about this easy Lucky Lime Punch recipe. It is the perfect citrus counter-balance to all of those amazing treats.

To be clear, this drink is not sugar-free. It is simply packed with that tart lime flavor. Kids will still love sipping it from their crazy straws. Mine did!
- 1.5 Quarts of Fat Free Lime Sherbet
- 12 oz. Frozen Limeade Concentrate
- 2 Liter of Lemon-Lime Soda
- Decorative Green Sugar (Optional)
Empty your entire container of sherbet into your serving container.
- The container your choose needs to be large enough to hold one gallon. Most punch bowls accommodate that but if you are using a pitcher check the volume capacity.
Next, empty your lime concentrate into your container.
Slowly pour your 2 liter of lemon-lime soda over the sherbet and the concentrate.
Carefully stir together until well mixed.
To Coat Glasses
Fill a small bowl with water and a second bowl with sugar.
Dip your cup into the water and then immediately dip in your sugar.
If you want you can bump the sweetness up and top your punch with some whipped cream. I chose not to because I love the tartness of the lime. The sherbet provides a nice foam on its own that I sprinkled some extra sugar on. However you choose to serve it, everyone will love this festive Lucky Lime Punch!
