Since raspberries are one of our favorite fruits here in our house, I decided to take raspberry sherbet and combine it with lemon-lime soda for this refreshingly cool drink. This punch is perfect for baby and wedding showers, summertime pool parties, picnics or entertaining any type of guest.

To make it an adults-only version, add your favorite flavored vodka, and serve ice cold for a fun cocktail.
