Presbyterian Punch is the best party punch go-to recipe. Sherbet, lemon-lime soda, orange juice, pineapple juice and frozen limeade!
Don’t ask me how these recipes get their names. But if you ask any southern Grandma – she’ll know exactly what you are talking about when you mention ‘Presbyterian Punch’. I assume it got its name from being served at any and all church functions. As a Presbyterian myself, I’m happy to lay claim to the name but this is a standard sherbet punch that has been served for decades by more than just us Presbies.
This is hands-down my favorite punch ever. Probably because it is so strongly attached to my youth. Of course, you can’t go wrong with Holiday Party Punch, Ocean Water Punch and my Sparkling Strawberry Punch! If I see those scoops of sherbet floating in a huge punch bowl, I am making a bee line straight to it. I love it. And I can’t get enough. One little punch glass is never enough for me.
It’s even better when someone else makes it. Why is that? Have you ever noticed that you can make the same exact recipe as someone else but theirs will always taste better? Well, at least for me. I absolutely love other people’s cooking and baking over my own. Maybe because I didn’t have to make it – ha!
