Sherbert Ice Cream Punch recipe

1959 advertisement

I found this recipe in an old woman's club cookbook. I have quite a collection, I like them for the quirky recipes and old-fashioned writing. This punch is supposed to be suitable for a church social or woman's club gathering .It doesn't say anything about keeping it cold, but it would probably be a good idea. It is sort of like a ice cream float, but the addition of sherbert much change the flavor quite a bit.


  • 10 1/2 cups chilled pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 pints orange sherbert
  • 3 3/4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 4 1/2 cups chilled ginger ale


  1. This needs to be made immediately before serving and served in a chilled bowl.
  2. Combine juice, ice cream and sherbert. Beat well.
  3. Gently stir in ginger ale and serve immediately.
