I have always called it ‘sherbET’ because, well, it’s just how I always called it. No rhyme or reason as to why I never gave it a proper ‘Bert’ name. But I know people who use the Bert term, and while I respect it, all I hear is, “Sure, Bert!” like you’re agreeing to something that someone named Bert said.
It just reminds me of that classic Airplane quote:
“Can you fly this plane, and land it?”
“Surely you can’t be serious.”
“I am serious.. and don’t call me Shirley.”
Just like when people pronounce ‘both’ like ‘bolth’, ‘draw’ like ‘drawr’ and ‘wash’ like ‘warsh.’ I get what you’re saying, I just have trouble concentrating with the extra letter present. Then again, this is coming from someone who regularly creates new words and is used to no one ever understanding me. *sigh*
Anyway, no matter how you pronounce it, I have an awesome recipe and GIVEAWAY for you today! Have you guys heard of Cascade Ice? Cascade Ice is a zero-calorie, sugar-free flavored sparkling water that eliminates the unhealthy, unnecessary extras like sugar, sodium, carbs, caffeine and gluten. In addition to zero-calorie, Cascade Ice also has a Sparkling Organic, Sparkling Essence and a Sparkling Mixer line. And Cascade Ice comes in 21 fantastic flavors, like Orange Mango, Acai Blueberry Pomegranate, Blueberry Watermelon, and Pink Grapefruit, to name a few.
I fell in love with Cascade Ice when I finally vowed to give up soda, and I haven’t looked back since! My absolute favorite is the Coconut, with Blueberry Watermelon following closely behind 🙂 Cascade Ice is an awesome soda replacement since it offers that same fizz you love with an amazing flavor, just zero-calorie and sugar-free, making it a great alternative that’s every bit as refreshing — just much healthier. And it’s caffeine-free, so it makes a great option for those avoiding caffeine, or something to give to kids even before bedtime.
In the meantime, can I interest you guys in a super refreshing and delicious drink? This Sherbet Lemonade Fizz is a combination between a drink, a punch, and a freezy treat that will definitely please a crowd. It only has a couple of easy ingredients and comes together in seconds, so you’ll be sipping pretty in no time.
Bottoms up, friends!!
- About ½ cup rainbow sherbet (or more to suit your preferences)
- 1 bottle Cascade Ice Lemonade
- 1 cup 10-calorie fruit punch
- Using a cookie dough scoop, scoop miniature rounds of sherbet equally among both cups. I used about 4-5 scoops per cup.
- Pour ½ cup of the fruit punch among both cups. Top with Cascade Ice Lemonade and serve!
- If you want this extra freezy, consider briefly freezing the glasses before serving. You could also blend this mixture together with a couple ice cubes for a frosty treat!
These Sherbet Lemonade Fizzes are DELICIOUS and SO refreshing! I love freezing my glasses before hand to make them extra chilly, especially after a hot day outside. They’re great to serve with dinner or on their own as a fantastic dessert for kids and adults alike. And if you’re feeling naughty, I wouldn’t be opposed to spiking these scrumptious drinks with some rum or vodka — think how tasty a lemon vodka would be here! 🙂
