Remember that sherbet punch you had at ever party of your childhood? It's so tasty, so I was inspired to make an adult version, inspired by good times and 7UP®, available at Hy-Vee®! Three simple ingredients and a little bit of adorable garnish make these drinks adorable and perfect for a special occasion, a get together, social night with friends, or even Valentine's Day and Galentine's Day Festivities! What is your favorite festive drink for the holiday?
I took these goblets (plastic or glass works great), and dipped them in melted white chocolate. Before that cools and hardens, dip them in red sprinkles. I mixed colored sugar with other red, ball-shaped sprinkles for a neat mixed texture. This added SO much to my pretty drinks!
After you have your glasses looking pretty, simply scoop a few spoonfulls spoonful of raspberry or rainbow sherbet into each glass. Simply add in some 7UP and optional vodka, and you have yourself a delicious, fun drink recipe! This tasted SO GOOD that I almost finished both glasses, haha! Garnishing them with flowers made them so cute!

HERE IS THE SECOND RECIPE:
All you need is a few simple ingredients for these tasty Adult Snow Cones!
1-2 Cans each of 7UP and Cherry 7UP
1 Large Box Each of 2 Colors of flavored gelatin (we used strawberry and lime)
1 Bottle Vanilla Vodka
1.) Boil 2 Cups water
2.) In 2 separate containers (1 for each color), add 1 C. boiling water to one container, and 1 C. boiling water to the other.
3.) Add 2 Cups original 7UP to one container, and 2 C. Cherry 7 UP to the other.
4.) Mix in 3oz. Lime flavored gelatin to the container with the original flavor 7UP, and add 3 oz Strawberry flavored gelatin to the container with the Cherry 7UP.
5.) Add 1 C. Vanilla Vodka to each container, and stir each color until fully combined and not "gritty" anymore.
5.) Freeze overnight (or for at least 4 hours). Once frozen, scoop into cute glasses with a large spoon, and top with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry for added garnish. Enjoy!
After you are sure they're frozen, top with whipped cream, and serve in a cute glass. Enjoy!
